About Us

We're a team of food lovers

At SugarBeat we bring you a unique eating house that captures our take on hospitality. Great homemade food, available from 9.00am for breakfast and throughout the day for lunch & dinner. Combined with fun drinks and a truly wonderful outside terrace, bar & marquee. To top it all we have 4 lovely bedrooms.


Step through our door and you’ll find an eating experience that immediately makes you feel at home. We are a family business and care deeply about our customers and their time with us. For us it’s a home from home experience.


We’re crazy about good food, about atmosphere and about making you feel at home delivering a first-rate service. We believe we’ve captured that in the birth of SugarBeat Eating House.


Why are we called SugarBeat eating house?

Our name's origins lie in our love of fun, music, and the wonderful county of Norfolk.


Following a complete refurbishment of the former Dunn Cow pub, we felt it was important to give our newly minted property a name to match its fun, colourful and playful interior. A clear line distinguishing the old from the new. Operating in a venue with over 400 years of hospitality history, we wanted to create a name that brought the pub from the past & into the present. What better way of doing this than giving it a new name!


With our love of the fine county of Norfolk, we took one of its staple agricultural ingredients, Sugarbeet and injected a bit of fun & a musical Beat together with a description of what we are and hey presto, on 1st July 2014 - SugarBeat Eating House was born.


Featuring 4 musically named rooms (Jackson, Bolton, Vandross & Manilow), an all day playlist to suit all ears & live music events throughout the summer months, we believe that music plays a great part of any hospitality venue. The ‘eating house’ clearly describes what we do! Open for breakfast, lunch & dinner everyday of the year (Except for Christmas day & Boxing day, we like to give our team some time at home with their families!) We hope you enjoy what we believe encapsulates our vision of relaxed hospitality.

First time at this pub. We had a very nice meal sitting outside. Typical pub food menu but what we both chose was tasty and the staff were very friendly and attentive. We were glad we went.
