2nd April 2023. A new firm favorite on the Take Flight Calendar is Sunday lunch at Dabbling Duck a short walk from Great Massingham Airfield in Norfolk. Around an hours flight from Enstone our destination for lunch stood proudly in the middle of the village surrounded by fields, but only a short distance from the stunning North Norfolk coast.
The pub has a welcoming atmosphere, with a proper bar where locals gather and a fantastic menu with dishes ranging from casual pub classics to seasonal dishes with local produce. Our choice was a delicious Sunday roast apart from Cameron who now enjoys his new nickname "Scampi Macchiato". The usual Take Flight mix of lively banter with a hint of intelligent conversation ensued.
There was an amusing incident with a local in an Audi TT (further information available on request) as we enjoyed ice creams in the sunshine! Some of the group detoured to the Norfolk coast on the return leg, an area of outstanding natural beauty, to take in the scenery and take a sneaky peep at the royal residence of Sandringham. Another fun day out.
