Four of us called in with the dog for an early lunch on Sunday whilst in the midst of a 16k walk This is a proper pub with log fires, excellent real ales and very friendly staff and customers. Three of us had the belly pork and one of us had the lamb stew with vegetables. We all decided on... More

Wishing we had a pub like this at home, just wonderful. We will return when we next visit without a doubt.

We are Italians and we went there for lunch. They served a delicious veggie burger and some classic italian tagliatelle... My husband really enjoyed it! The location is a typical english inn. Very warm atmosphere and delicious food & great service! We'll definitely go back again!

We've recently been to the Swan for a family Sunday lunch. The atmosphere was great to enjoy an early Autumn treat. The food was seasonal and fresh, had the butternut squash soup and the butternut squash lasagna. Absolutely delicious and incredible value for money (£35 for the whole family, two course lunch with a few ales and pudding for the... More

My partner and I visited the Swan for his birthday, I had been many times before and was sure this would be just as good as my previous visits (albeit a couple of years ago). We both chose the starters of garlic and stilton stuffed mushrooms...which turned up as a few leaves of lettuce a flat mushroom with a bit... More

After a lovely day out we called in at The Swan for a drink. We were chatting with Danny the owner who told us he had locally sourced 17 oz rump steak and Cromer mussels, both our favourites ! How could we refuse. We decided to ditch the car and stay. We weren't disappointed, the mussels were cooked in cider... More

My husband and I went for dinner on Saturday, October 11th, not planned, spur of the moment. We are glad we went! I was expecting fish and chips, the standard but boring fare. I was pleasantly surprised! I had a chicken, ham and mushroom pie with celeriac mash, my husband had pork belly. The selection of veg was perfectly cooked... More

Me and my partner have been to this pub on several occasions and every time we have always been amazed at how great the food is here. Some of the best food and we even had food here that we wouldn't normally choose, for example Game and a cheese board, and both were cooked superbly. The atmosphere is great and... More

The Swan is our local and we love it. It's a real village pub with great real ales, cosy log fires and a wonderfully friendly atmosphere. Try the food. It's always good but we visited the "country fayre" food evening recently which was one of the regular early week themed evenings and it was not only outstanding but real value... More

This looks and feels like an old-fashioned pub. In winter there is a fire in the grate, in summer you can sit in the garden by the river and watch the dicks and swans playing near the weir. Service is good, food is good with a choice appropriate to the venue, it just seems expensive for a ploughman's or a... More
