Had lunch here and enjoyed a well prepared and presented meal. The setting is perfect, overlooking the Broad. The staff were friendly and helpful and we all enjoyed our visit. However, as we live nearby we tend to avoid this place during the busy tourist season as the place can get very crowded and it is often very difficult to park nearby, although there is a nearby public pay and display car park Out of season it is well worth a visit and the staff are not rushed off their feet. All food is freshly cooked for you.

As our friend has a house boat in Horning, we have visited The Swan several times this year. Our recent visit (for an anniversary meal) was just as good and this is definitely our favourite pub in the area.
The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, and our waiter was happy to recommend a main course for us when we were a bit undecided.
The meal we had was lovely and the quality of food actually seemed better than last time.
Looking forward to another visit soon!

Recently visited whilst boating on the Broads. Only pub that wouldn't allow dogs and when asked if we could have a meal to take away onto the boat 'stated that due to health and safety they couldn't do this "! Other pubs we visited had the option printed on their menus :-(

upon my return of taking photographs of 'birds on the broads' for country life magazine, i decided to stop off for a swift drink in the swan, as i was travelling alone and often do for my photography it can become quite lonely, i was delighted to sit at the bar and have a nice chat with the barmaid (Ellie) who i can only decribe as a breath of fresh air, she was a lovely girl, great service with a great smile its not everyday that the bar staff are so warm and freindly. i will certainly be returning when i return to the broads i can only hope my dear friend is still there.

In Norfolk for weekend so called in at the Swan Inn to try out their Saturday "before 5 p.m. 2 for £8.50 meals". Lovely setting overlooking the River Bure where you can just sit, relax and watch the cruisers sail by. Jess, the waitress was friendly and very helpful. Alas, home-made soup had gone but the bacon and Stilton salad was lovely. Main courses were all well cooked, well presented and tasty. Those who had no soup plumped for desserts (delicious churros). All in all a very nice meal, we will return and would recommend.
