AA Rosettes for The Lifeboat Inn3 AA Stars for The Lifeboat Inn


The Lifeboat Inn is a traditional coastal Inn set in Thornham village on the North Norfolk coast. It has been completely refurbished and boasts 13 stylish bedrooms, some with coastal views, an oak-beamed bar, relaxed dining room and a glass roofed conservatory. The Lifeboat has an evolving seasonal menu that uses the very best local and fresh produce, reflecting The Inns proximity to the coast.

The AA Stars and Rosettes scheme was established in 1908 and is one of the most prestigious awards recognised nationally. The Lifeboat was awarded 3 AA Stars after evaluating cleanliness, hospitality, service, accommodation and food. The Inn received a very high AA Merit Score of 86%.

The AA inspector, Rebecca Johnson, complimented quality ingredients and locally sourced food, lovely ambience in the restaurant, all round cleanliness and charming public areas.

General Manager at The Lifeboat, James Green, said: “We’re delighted with the recent recognition. It is a great testament to the development of The Lifeboat and the hard work put in by the team in the past year. We will continue to grow and strive for the best standards in order that our guests receive a great experience with some memorable moments.”
