The Lifeboat Inn at Thornham came in at No.13 on the list of places that offer 'blazing fires, great grub and cosy rooms'.

The Times highlights a 'pinch-penny slot' game that sits on the Lifeboat's oak-beamed bar, saying it is: "ideal on wet days, and more fun with every pint of ale you drink".

The story also praises the pub's proximity to salt marshes, the sea, and Burnham Market, and adds: "The pub, hidden behind a church, serves warming soups and stews in its dining room, and has 13 bedrooms with coastal views".

The Lifeboat, which is more than 500 years old, was also recently named on an EDP list of nine of the best coastal pubs in Norfolk.
