The imposing Grade I Listed Diss By Verve was built in 1655 as a coaching inn, originally named The White Hart, for horse drawn carriages, welcoming up to forty coaches a day in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Charles II ‘Broke his Fast’ at the hotel, Lord Nelson slept here, and highwayman John Belcher is said to have ridden his horse up the stairs to evade the law. Later changing it's name to the Scole Inn which it was known for many, many years it has now been renamed Diss By Verve celebrating its new found glory with a full refurbishment.
The bedrooms are either in the main building with original fireplaces, some with four poster beds, or across the courtyard in the restored Georgian stables known as the Coach house. There is a fine bar with two magnificent fireplaces, reputedly the largest in East Anglia, and an excellent restaurant.
