Booked table for two, very polite friendly service, able to peruse menu in the bar area prior to being seated at table. Complementary drink for my husband as it was his birthday. We both really enjoyed our meal. Service with a smile and lovely variation of food, although my husband would have liked a bit more seafood choice. Would definitely... More

The rooms are spacious and extremely comfortable as well as quiet. I had breakfast both mornings which was superb with plenty of choice. On Saturday night I enjoyed... More

Outside of Norwich, north of the airport, this hotel is in a lovely small village. Clean and extremely helpful staff who go out of their way to be helpful. Good kitchen and nice service. I've been several times and would go back.

Great place for a week stay. Great staff, Inc 'Stu', behind bar, good food and a super housekeeping team. Nothing was 'too much' for them. Liked it so much we've booked to go back very soon.

Went for a meal here on Saturday night. Was looking for some where different to go and a google search of good restaurants in Norwich bought up the Black SWan. As an avid follower of tripadviser I did look at previous reviews so decided to give it a try. My brother is an extremely fussy eater but as long as... More

Visited this pub for a family lunch. Lots to choose from and priced fairly. There was a specials menu, kids menu, main menu and a sandwich menu. We all enjoyed our food. The staff were very friendly and professional. The restaurant is modern with a relaxed atmosphere. The Malbec was fab!! Will definitely be returning!

Standard fare, but very attentive and friendly service turned what would have been an average pub dinner into a very pleasant family meal. Our host also gave us some excellent advice about where to visit and where to avoid during our visit to Norfolk.
