Newly refurbished in 2014, the new Waveney Inn is the southern Broads' premiere waterside pub. Featuring an air-conditioned bar and restaurant, a huge deck overlooking Carlton Marshes nature reserve and a mouth-watering menu of locally-sourced, home-cooked food, this family-owned and family-friendly pub is at the heart of the award-winning Waveney River Centre, at Burgh St Peter.
The pub is located on the river Waveney, just a few minutes upstream of Oulton Dyke and about 1.25 hours from Beccles. By road, you can find us signposted from the A143, 4.5 miles from Haddiscoe village.
We've sought out the best quality local ingredients, including Waveney Valley meat from Pepperells butchers, artisan bread from the Penny Bun Bakehouse and a wide range of ales from Adnams of Southwold.
Many of our meals are available in small, regular and large sizes - helping us to cater for most appetites - and we offer a range of sharing boards include charcuterie meats, cheeses and seafood.
Favourites from our menu include:
Waveney Burgers - hand-formed in our kitchen and served in artisan bread with home-made Adnams beer-battered onion rings and double-dipped proper chips.
Norfolk Sausage & Mash - infused with salted butter & chives and topped in onion gravy
Steak & Guinness Pie - prime chunks of Waveney Valley steak marinated in Rioja and slow-cooked in a Guinness Gravy
Felafel Burger - a perfect middle-eastern recipe of chick peas & spices in an artisan bun
Fish & Chips - locally sourced and prepared in our home-made Adnams beer batter
You can download our menu from our website - and there are daily specials too to make your mouth water!
The Waveney Inn has been around for over 135 years, and early in the 20th century was not only a hotel and wherry trading staithe but a zoo as well! From 1904 to 1914, Frank Rice's Zoological Gardens was a famous local attraction, featuring bears, monkeys and a 'sacred white camel' amongst its menagerie.
In 1907, two brown bears escaped - only to be shot and eaten by local villagers! We don't do that now, of course.
Waveney River Centre is the southern-Broads' award winning five star holiday destination - featuring luxury holiday lodges with hot tubs, camping & touring, glamping pods, boats moorings and day cruiser & canoe hire, as well as an indoor heated swimming pool, shop and of course the new Waveney Inn.
The Inn and River Centre are accessible by river, road or - thanks to our pedestrian ferry service - on foot from Oulton Broad, Carlton Colville and the Angles Way long distance footpath.
