About us

The Old Ram Coaching Inn in Norfolk is a charming, listed Inn dating back to the 17th Century. Situated in the beautiful village of Tivetshall St. Mary, The Old Ram offers the perfect base from which to explore the South Norfolk countryside.

You can read about our history by local historian Nigel Peacock here.

We are now back open serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week.  We use fresh local ingredients and since we reopened we are striving to reduce food miles and concentrate on seasonal and local ingredients. We are newly partnered with Intwood Farm, serving superb meats from their native rare breed herds.
A range of Norfolk made gifts is available for our guests to purchase at the bar or reception including Norfolk teas, gins, oils and chocolate.
We are more than happy to cater for any dietary requirements.
Booking is highly recommended.
