Met friends here for lunch before Christmas. After reading the reviews of the food we were disappointed. The portions were so huge it was positively off putting. The ambience was good and very friendly staff but we won't be back. Sorry

Five of us went to The Swan and I have to say what a fantastic place. We all had starters and main courses. The portions were good sized and the fact that all our plates were cleared illustrates just how tasty the food was. We were made to feel very welcome and will certainly return.

Pleasant evening spent with friends seeing in the New Year. The food was very good value for money, the beef Wellington was better than what we have had previous years at Lyndford Hall.

Popped in here before our drive home to London. Starters were delicious (especially the tiger prawns) and so were the mains! The portion sizes were very generous. Service was excellent...will definitely come back again.

We usually visit here once or twice a month for the Sunday Carvery. At £10 per head it's the best traditional Sunday roast lunch for miles around. The food is consistently of a high standard and the setting of this west Norfolk country pub is lovely. It's wise to book because it gets busy.

Lovely friendly country pub, extensive menu, very tasty Sunday carvery with a good choice of beers. We have lunched here on weekdays and the occasional Sunday and have always enjoyed our meal hence the five stars.
