Stayed whilst visiting friends just after the new year holiday - the room we had was very spacious and comfortable with a large sofa making it really good when meeting up with friends (who have recently moved to Watton) and joined us for our meal in the pub which was really good + extra large servings if you have a...

I have stayed at the Swan before, but this time, I thought I would write a review. I stayed there for three nights and it was very pleasant. The staff were very helpful and couldn't do enough for me. The room was clean and very well furnished. Breakfast was very good and you could have a fried breakfast which was... More

Stayed here last night with my friend and it was lovely. We stayed in one of the suites and were really surprised how comfortable the bed was and how well appointed and spacious the room was. We ate in the restaurant and the staff were friendly and the food was good. We will definately be staying here again soon

Other Half and I fancied a few days in Norfolk in October. Unable to find anywhere on the North coast and unwilling to stay in town we searched for somewhere slightly rural. The Swan fitted the bill to a tee. Excellent accommodation, warm and comfy room and the TV worked too. The meals were good, the portion sizes exactly right,... More

Met a friend for coffee, there was a lovely friendly atmosphere. Staff were helpful. Shame there wasn't a variety of coffees, only filter coffee but that was fine. We didn't eat, but saw food being brought out which looked quite good and there seemed to be a good menu.

As usual we had good quality food, in relaxed surroundings. James always checks we are happy with our meal. We are regulars to the Sunday lunches and also mid week meals, all priced reasonably and freshly cooked.

Oh Dear, perhaps we called in on the wrong night. There was no one at the bar when we arrived. We had plenty of time to make our choices, then placed our orders and waited... and waited. We are quiet, reserved people, but 50 mins after ordering, we still had not been served. It wasn't exactly busy and we were... More
