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.

    Excellent lunch. They do a lunch du jour that we have had several times. Always good choices beautifully cooked and presented. Featuring local produce. They have a real passion for the food and their customers. Always very welcoming and a really nice venue.

    This is a classy eatery but our most recent visit was dissapointing. The food was not up to previously high standards and the table we were seated at as draughty. Our dining group of four were actually cold. When the owner is on duty standards are very high. When he is not there it slips a couple of notches, which is a shame. This is not the first time we have noticed this.

    Every part of the meal was excellent in a warm comfortable atmosphere with flavours and textures created 'heaven'! The service was very attentive. All in all a superb lunch well worth the visit. We shall be going back (again and again!).

    Service was exemplary. The food was very enjoyable and of a partcularly high standard. The Swan, which I have known as a pub and now a restaurant, was as warm and welcoming as ever. The bricks visible in the restaurant are known as " Ingham Salmons" The used to be a brick kiln in the village,where these bricks would have been made.

    This restaurant really has a lovely ambience - all the features of a listed building however modern contemporary features have been introduced to provide the best of both worlds. Small but well stocked bar there is however a more private seating area for pre-meal drinks. Our dining experience was for a birthday celebration and we were given time for drinks at the bar before being shown to our table. There was a good range of both meat and fish dishes some of which most recently featured on the GBM- we were given a complimentary pre-starter and all enjoyed our main courses - a truly fine dining experience. As a special touch the chef sent a plate of after dinner sweets presented on a plate which had been piped with chocolate saying "happy birthday" Would definitely visit this restaurant again and was particularly impressed by the attentiveness of the staff . Looking forward to a return visit soon

    We had a very warm welcome from the staff on arrival throughout the evening. Food was well presented and although we had not planned to have dessert we did succumb and were not disappointed.
