The Berney Arms has been open for two weeks serving food and drink. The owner has applied to the Broads Authority for permission to change the inn into a private dwelling.

The wife and I caught the train for Yarmouth and visited the Berney Arms yesterday, unfortunately still closed and up for sale. Really enjoyed the walk back to Great Yarmouth with the dogs, and the weather was glorious. Well maintained pathways and kissing gates. smile

The Berney Arms pub is still up for sale. Let's hope some one takes it over and gets the pub going again soon

We went there twice, by boat, last week in July and first in August. The couple running the place told us the lunch time rushes had been so good that they were looking at keeping the place open throughout the year. Good food and beer but, sadly, all the old atmosphere had gone.
A friend of mine, who goes there every year on a university reunion, made his usual pilgrimage just over a week ago. Found it as described below. Closed signs in all the windows.
Here's hoping someone else takes it on soon. They usually do!
Mind you, it was always busier when the mill was open. Now that too is locked up and looking sad. frown

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

Andy Monday, 25 August 2014 15:03
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 15:43
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 16:03
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.

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 17:41
Good to see. Thanks for the update - let's hope it stays open!

Andy Thursday, 2 May 2013 07:10
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 17:40
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 10:46
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 07:06
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!!
