The Wiveton Bell
'In a bucolic setting, with a backdrop of village green and church, the spruced-up Bell has much to please city escapees,' says David. 'A stunning, rustic-chic makeover - all beams, chunky tables and polished plank floors - suits the bistropub ethos and the menu is seductive. Tuck into a hearty bowl of Morston mussels or venison casserole then stay over in one of the lovely rooms.'
