The Ingham Swan
“Assured cooking in rebooted village pub” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's view
A thatched 14th-century former coaching inn, The Ingham Swan is located in the heart of a village close to the north-east Norfolk coastline. Retaining plenty of original features, the light dining area has a more contemporary feel and is an ideal setting for modern British dishes executed with pin-sharp precision. Start with pan-seared sea bass, mussel broth, saffron potatoes and leek sauce, before a beautifully cooked lamb cannon with roast celeriac, confit swede, sprouting broccoli, black olive crumb, glazed beetroot and red wine jus. Finish with pistachio cake, compressed pear, pistachio cream, chocolate mousse and pear sorbet.

About the area
The North Norfolk Coast is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and probably the finest of its kind in Europe. Here you’ll find a string of quaint villages and small towns – Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea and Cley next the Sea are 21st-century favourites, while Sheringham and Cromer are classic examples of a good old-fashioned seaside resort where grand Victorian hotels look out to sea. Further round the coast you'll find Great Yarmouth, one of the most popular resorts in the UK and packed full of amusements, shops and seashore entertainment. And let's not forget Norwich, the region's only city.
Norfolk prides itself on its wealth of historic houses, the most famous being Sandringham, where Her Majesty the Queen and her family spend Christmas. Many of Norfolk’s towns have a particular charm and a strong sense of community. The quiet market towns of Fakenham and Swaffham are prime examples, as well as Thetford, with its popular museum focusing on the TV comedy series Dad’s Army which was filmed in the area.
