For starters, I started staying here on recommendation from a colleague. The recommendation proved accurate and I have revisited several times now and will continue to do so. The staff are all very friendly, rooms are clean and comfortable, food is great and there's a good range of drinks to suit all tastes. What more do you need?

Stopped here on our way back from a day out. Place looked homely on the outside and was the same on the inside with the fire on in the bar area. This place must get busy as most of the tables were reserved. The lighting was a bit too minimal for me, could of done with a few more lights...

I stayed at this pub with my husband and dog and can highly recommend it. We initially booked a standard double but did find it too small for us. For an extra £10 per night we upgraded and it was so worth it. The room was so much bigger and suited us much better. We ate in the pub both...

From the minute we got in they couldn't help us enough checking packaging of everything to see what she could have . We all had the delicious...

We went to King`s Lynn for the Anglia Auction and needed an overnight stay. We found this beautiful Pub with a family- and dogfriendliy room. Diner and Lunch have been excellent. The room was a huge family-appartment with 2 bedrooms, a living room, a bathroom and a little kitchen. The bathroom was not really clean (especially the shower was, to...

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.
