There is now a For Sale sign at the pub. It has an asking price of £230,000 and has been listed by TW Gaze.

Went there Sat 23rd - we often walk from the station to Berney Arms, then on to the Ship at Reedham and the Nelson.
Sorry to have to tell you Berney Arms is CLOSED, so is the Nelson, such a shame.
Recession over is it Cameron? frown

I was there the week previous to your visit and it was definitely open - good food and beer. Joe in the pub certainly indicated that the pub would be open throughout the season so perhaps this was a one-off. Not sure what time you visited though.

Les Monday, 25 August 2014 16:43
Andy the time we visited is irrelevant, the pub is CLOSED, SHUT, NOT OPEN. And as the person above confirms, up for sale at £230k.

Andy Monday, 25 August 2014 17:03
I understand what you said the first time Les. For all I knew though you could have gone there at 9am so the time isn't completely irrelevant - unless there was a notice stating a permanent closure which you didn't say. My point was that that it was open when I visited a week earlier and the landlord indicated it would remain open all season. Obviously something changed since my visit though as detailed in Paul and Sheila's post. Let's hope someone buys it and it reopens soon.

Yup definitely shut and up for sale.
End of an era as we knew it.
Sadly moved on to the ship at Reedham.

Had a great night at Berney Arms, food and beer was excellent, definitely worth mooring up and checking out.

Hi to everyone, we have just taken on the 'Berney Arms Inn' and hope to meet as many visitors as possible. Fine ales and good food will be available as well as a warm welcome.
Joe and Mandy.

I have become fascinated with this area after reading "Coot Club" by Arthur Ransome. This book contains wonderful and atmospheric descriptions of the area. Do read it if you haven't already done so. Berney Arms also features in it.

The pub reopened with a new leaseholder on Saturday 20th April. He hopes to stay open through as much of the winter as possible too!

Andy Monday, 29 April 2013 18:41
Good to see. Thanks for the update - let's hope it stays open!

Andy Thursday, 2 May 2013 08:10
Opening hours are believed to be 11am to 11pm, 7 days a week but I suggest phoning the pub on 01493 700303 to check on this and the availability of meals.

Great site. However would have been good to know it was recently closed and now more importantly re-opened. Long way to go to find out. Let's hope it stays open a long time.

Andy Monday, 29 April 2013 18:40
The website is really a local history website and has no connection to the pub so it really relies on information from visitors who leave messages in the guestbook about its current status. Luckily there are plenty!

Hi Andy - great site you have here. I have a couple of photos from a cold weekend in 1989 I'd be happy to share with you if you're interested. Also happy to recall less stressful times.

Can anyone advise the opening times for the Berney Arms please? Somewhere I saw mention that said that it was closed in the "Winter months". We intend to walk from Acle to Yarmouth on the Weavers Way & take the train back to Acle & it would be nice to have a pint [or two] at the half way point. Intended walk date is 29th Sept 2012

Thanks

Phil R

Andy Monday, 27 August 2012 11:46
Hi Phil
You really need to call them direct on 01493 700303 as things have changed over the years and I don't know what the current situation is.

Phil Robinson Tuesday, 28 August 2012 08:06
Thanks for that - I'll give them a call during the week

We did the walk although it was a circular one based at Halvergate. Super pub & welcoming owners - they loved the four dogs that we brought in! Just as we left a boatfull of "pirates" turned up - we should have hung around to see the reaction of the pub!!

Wow, what a trip down memory lane. I hope you get lots more pictures to put on here! I've been trying to find a map of Gorleston in 1950's - 1960's but can't find one for sale anywhere. If anyone can guide me I'd be very grateful.

Me and family are thinking about coming here via the train from Norwich. We've also heard about boats to Berney Arms - any info about that?

Andy Friday, 17 February 2012 21:39
There used to be a trip boat from Yarmouth to Berney Arms during the summer months but I'm not sure if that still happens. Tourist Information may know more.
