Welcome to Poacher's Pocket

Pub, Restaurant, B&B in Bacton, on Norfolk's unspoilt East Coast


Situated right on the beach, overlooking the sea on the Norfolk coast, the building was originally built as a country house around the 1850's. Gary Stubbs took over The Poachers Pocket in 1994 and was later joined by his wife Caroline. Together they have built their business into the friendly and thriving local attraction we are happy to welcome you to today. This accommodating family pub has much to offer including large bar areas, dart board and pool tables, two large TV screens, weekend live entertainment, upstairs restaurant with sea views (or you can enjoy your meals outside overlooking the sand), fully equipped function room and bed & breakfast with chalet accommodation.

Not only can The Poachers Pocket provide all the coastal delights on one side they also have the beauty of offering rural views from the other.

Dogs are welcome to stay in the bar and holiday chalets. The 'on the door step' seafront is open for off-lead dog walking all year round.
