Boasting British fine dining awarded with a Michelin Bib Gourmand for 2013, the Restaurant at The Ingham Swan, near Norwich, takes pride in its high, yet competitively priced, food quality. Originally a 14th-century coaching inn, the restaurant has retained its pastoral roots with a painstakingly maintained bar and luxurious lodging.

Serving sumptuous, innovative British cuisine, the Restaurant at The Ingham Swan offers menus du jour, a la carte or for Sunday lunch. It proffers mouth-watering choices such as honey-roasted breast of Gressingham duck with roast squash and Chinese cabbage, and baked vanilla cheesecake with mango sorbet and pineapple ravioli.

In the picturesque hamlet of Ingham, The Ingham Swan values its country inn charm, but intertwines this with sleek modern touches. The faithfully restored oak floor also features eye-catching slate tiles, and the rustic flint walls and inglenook fireplaces are carefully balanced with contemporary art and cheerful floral decorations.

Nestled in the rolling North Norfolk countryside, The Ingham Swan is minutes from the sea, and just 25 minutes’ drive from Norwich.

    Food was absolutely incredible but sadly the service wasn't great. Despite adding notes to my booking that I was vegetarian and I wanted the tasting menu, the staff seemed prepared for neither. I was given a regular menu and, when I asked very nicely if I could have a veggie menu, the waitress seemed flustered and said there is only one veggie option. I clarified that I wanted to try the tasting menu, to which she responded, rather condescendingly, that she was sure I did not in fact want the tasting menu because it is about 6 courses and for the whole table! Once I clarified that the veggie tasting menu was exactly what I wanted, I then had to wait while she printed it out and waitress checked with the kitchen staff that the dishes were still available.
    I will come again for the food, but was disappointed that the service lived up neither to the standard of food nor the price of the meal.

    Overall experience was enjoyable and relaxed even though our booking was lost. We had the 2 course lunch du jour with a glass of wine. Overall value good. We both had pheasant which lacked something. Bit dry and little or no game flavour. Staff good. I think the seating arrangements could be improved wouldn't have wanted to sit on top of the fire!!

    We arrived very late for our lunch but there was no hint of irritation on the part of the restaurant staff and we were never rushed while eating. Though eating from the fixed price lunch menu, our 2 vegetarian friends were able to choose any dishes from the a a carte menu. In my case a pleasant amuse bouche was followed by excellent hot mackerel, roast crackling belly pork, a pre-dessert and an elegant apple meringue cake with blackberry sorbet. Four of us eating, with a single drink each, were left with a bill of less than £120, outstanding value for a meal of this quality.

    We arrived much earlier than the booked time but were greeted cordially and shown to our table so that we could look at the menu at leisure. The staff were, as always, friendly and efficient, being attentive and eager to assist with any enquiries. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, as my wife Mary and I had found on our two previous visits earlier in the year. One of our guests remarked that the lamb dish was the best she had ever tasted, and the same was said of the sticky-toffee-pudding by the two who selected it. Everyone was greatly impressed with the entire experience and all four of our guests are determined to dine with you again. Thank you so much for making Mary's birthday a success. I had kept it a secret from her until we reached Ingham and her face was a joy to behold when she realised where we were going. Best wishes, Allan.

    First time at The Ingham Swan for a birthday celebration and it certainly lived up to it's reputation. The food was superb in quality, taste and presentation giving excellent value. The staff were very welcoming and efficient giving a very relaxed but professional atmosphere. Will definitely be returning.
