We stayed here on business for one night. The room was clean, the bathroom small but ok. My main complaint with the room, no full length hanging space. The owners where catering for a wedding the weekend we stayed, and we were very much made to feel that we were in the way, and more of an inconvenience. Having said... More

Visiting my dear Aunt in Swaffam and asked for best Sunday Lunch going, my Aunt recommended the Horse and Groom. The lunch was very tasty with very fresh vegetables and nicely cooked meats. A 2 course lunch and drinks for £30 in a lovely setting you could not ask for more, the staff were very friendly and welcoming.

This coaching Inn was quaint and had historical charm all of its own. The room was clean, tidy and had good facilities within the room. The en suite was a little cramped but the nature of the old building had to be taken into account. As it was on a Friday night that I stayed , the pub was a... More

Stayed here for an event being held at 'Stanleys' over the road. The owner has an interest in both. Good sized room ( I think we were in the largest No 8). Clean bedding & bathroom, tea & coffee facilities. Cereals available for breakfast, if you wanted a cooked one it needed to be ordered at an extra cost. If... More

Food always great, service excellent, lovely, friendly staff. Sunday carvery our favourite and very reasonably priced. You won't be disappointed. You probably need to book though as its a local favourite.

This pub is very popular probably because the menu is competitively priced - Sunday carvery only £6.95. Choice of Beef or Pork (if you're cheeky maybe a slice of both) "well done" but it was towards the end of service and I suppose I should've expected the overdone veg. Being a carvery the portions were as generous as you wanted... More

Stayed at the horse and groom for a few days whilst visiting relatives. The owners were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean, with feather duvet and pillows, TV, tea and coffee making facilities and a nice large shower. We were provided with a key so we could come and go as we please. The hotel...

The very small double we were in featured a TV that didn't work, a weak shower and an smell of cats urine. They did come in to clean the room when we told them but unfortunately it still was there and we had booked two nights. Though they offered us an even smaller room they were not going to refund...

I am sorry you felt the need to write this review , after all I spoke with you after our cleaner had dealt with the problem and you yourself informed me that you knew what the smell was! As you informed me you were in the building trade at some point and it would be from a possible leak and... More
