The Dun Cow in Salthouse is a great place for some post walk refreshments. They do good food and have an interesting interior with wood beams and an exposed brick fireplace. Outside there's a lovely garden area with fine views over the Salthouse Marshes. You can find the inn on Purdy Street at a postcode of NR25 7XA.
