    We went for the taste of Norfolk. The dishes were very much a mixed bag from the excellent (the beef was superb) to the outright awful (one dish was a sort of packet soup with puff crisps spinkeled over the top). Not as nice as I was expecting and certainly not as nice as the price would suggest.

    The staff were nice, the food was OK. I was hoping for some really tasty food given the Michelin plate, but it all felt a bit bland. We did the taster menu. There was nothing that stood out, no dish I thought was amazing where I really wanted more. It was clearly good ingredients and nice presentation, but ultimately it tasted bland and boring. The atmosphere was achingly dull, the service was fine but the courses took so long to arrive. Sorry, I like being positive, but this was supposed to be a treat and for the price it just felt disappointing.

    We loved this restaurant. We had it as a recommendation and couldn't fault it. The waiter was very attentive and arranged for the door to be closed as it was getting chilly. The food was amazing. Wine by the glass was delicious. Would definitely go back if we lived around here.

    What a pretty place, and wow you are so welcomed on arrival, the menu is varied and everything was tempting! The staff are attentive and friendly but leave you to enjoy your meal, the wine menu is fabulous too, we’ve not seen our daughter for 6 months and this was a great place to celebrate!

    Very nice restaurant, very stylish. The staff were attentive and cheerful. My only issue was portion size. The food itself was very good. We would go again.

    This Restaurant has excellent reviews and for good reason. We had 3 courses from The Meal of The Day menu and everything without exception was excellent. The food was outstanding. All 3 courses were delicious, we were not disappointed with anything. This will be a food memory for me and I can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough - I enjoyed everything about it.

    Excellent atmosphere, customer service and as always the food was superb. The systems in place re covid were again of a level to offer reassurance.

    Best lunch we have had out in Norfolk this year. Beautifully presented by a charming helpful waitress in a lovely cosy atmosphere. Easy to find and convenient parking.

    Super restaurant with rooms. Very friendly staff and food was imaginative and very high quality. Very reasonable menu du jour alongside a full a la carte menu. Would definitely eat here again.

    I booked Sunday lunch to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. I booked over 2 weeks in advance, online, and stressed my mother's age and that she would be in a wheelchair. I called the restaurant on the Friday before our visit to be told that there were no facilities for a disabled person. Nevertheless, we decided that we would still go, it being too late to find anywhere else special enough for a 90th birthday in the area. There were two very steep steps down into the restaurant, but my mum was very determined and we made it to our table with difficulty. From then on, it was a delightful experience, the food was delicious and beautifully presented and the service could not be faulted. The starters were all yummy and although we all went for the roasts, they were way above the usual meat and two veg experience. We were all much too full for pudding but the menu was unusual and very tempting. I travel a lot and have eaten at many excellent restaurants but I have to say that my mother's birthday lunch was perfect, finished off with chocolates on a plate decorated with Happy Birthday written in chocolate! We were made exceptionally welcome, our waitress was a sweetheart and could not have been more professional and helpful. We will certainly be back and would love to stay in the rooms just to try the breakfast! Thank you everyone at The Ingham Swan.

    Enjoyed a pleasant evening with friends. The wait for coffee was a bit long. Could have driven home quicker and made our own !

    OMG, out of this world. Didn’t know what to expect. Wanted a nice place to treat our friends and heard the Ingham Swan is very nice. They were not wrong. It is pricey but don’t let that put you off, with the standard of the food and service it was definitely worth it. Everything that came to the table was presented well and the flavours were amazing. Quality produce cooked to perfection. Definitely going back. Fantastic night. 10 out of 10.

    I did not like being stuck in the bar area when other tables were available.
