Easy to find as its on the main road through Hilborough. What a popular place this is when we arrived on a Saturday tee time all the outside tables had gone and all the tables inside had been reserved too.luckily we had booked a table and we couldn't fault the food or service considering how busy it was.The room we...

This well presented pub with rooms to stay is situated on a bend going north to Swaffham. Don't drive by! It's worth the stop! Big car park. Lots of space to sit outside and inside. It's been beautifully renovated and makes for a super venue for lunch or dinner. We had a simple lunch, Cajun Chicken sandwich. The chicken was... More

Six of us decided to try this well received Inn for Saturday dinner.The menu was typical pub grub ( nothing wrong with that if cooked well)steaks,grills etc.We all had starters which were ok but lacking in quantity,certainly the amount of whitebait was very limited.Main courses arrived promptly and unfortunately three out of the six were wrong.Granted the errors were quickly...

We met friends at The Swan on their recommendation and we were not disappointed. Our meals were all really good, well cooked and plenty on the plates. My husband and I enjoyed our meals so much that we returned the following night for another meal. Service was excellent and staff very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

We stayed at The Swan due to its proximity to Thetford Forest. We had bought tickets to see Sam Smith and found £65 for an overnight stay in the Hamilton Suite a good price. Due to a hiccup with a booking site the £65 also included full breakfast which is not normally what The Swan offer. When I mentioned this... More

I have stayed here on 2 occasions now for a total of 3 nights and would thoroughly recommend this pub for food, accommodation and a great welcome. The rooms are functional and, although not fancy, for the price, represent great value. Add to this a full breakfast with plenty of choice for £7.50 and you have a well positioned and... More

A proper village pub with lovely food and service. There is a large car park too. We had delicious sandwiches well filled and not with the dreadful doorstep bread that seems so popular. Salad that came with lovely fresh salad and chips if you wanted them, a find and we will be back

We stayed at the Swan as it had a great location for us to travel onto the sea the next day. The pub was cosey - we only went for a drink (we didn't eat) but was enjoyable. The room is a good size, however it was SO hot throughout the upstairs floor, which meant it was hard to get... More

I visited the Swan for my birthday with wife and family. The traditional pub building is fantastic. Traditional bar with a great selection of ales and lagers, and great food. Dogs are welcome in the bar. We ate in the restaurant, food was great, wine list very reasonable, and service was great. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. A... More
