We eat here as a couple most weekends as we live a few miles away. Why do we? Because we haven't found anything to make us not to! The food is always first class served by staff that can't do enough for you, especially Carleen,Amy & Lucy. The Swann is always busy and that speaks volumes

We had a lovely stay - there was a great choice of delicious food, a relaxed atmosphere and the friendly staff could not have been more helpful. The accommodation was really spacious, clean and comfortable. We will definitely be coming back.

The room was dirty with stains on the bedding. Marks on the walls including squashed flies. The radio playing dance music in the kitchen area was so loud we could hear it above the TV (which only worked for 5 minutes in every 20) late into the night until I complained and it was turned off. I asked about the... More

Popped in on way past through Thetford forest to see what the place was like and found very friendly staff which convinced us to stay for an excellent meal. The staff made us (and our dog) feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. We will be back!!
