The restaurant was very busy on a Sunday lunchtime but my daughters and I were impressed with the service. We did not have to wait for our meal and staff were attentive. Nice atmosphere, will definitely visit again.

Situated on the River Yare and the small waterways south of Norwich, The Marsh Harrier has enjoyed its beautiful location since 1840. Tastefully refurbished, it serves classic British pub cuisine in a rustic design, with log piles, a vintage brick hearth and homely trinkets adorning the furniture. The al fresco beer garden for summer dining boasts fantastic views of the eye-catching building and surrounding countryside.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Marsh Harrier menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Marsh Harrier ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

At just 5 minutes’ drive from Norwich, The Marsh Harrier is the perfect country destination close to the city.

    Greeting was pleasant and prompt. We were not told directly about placing food orders at the bar, but knew about it because we waited an hour on our previous visit, before we found out. Little notes placed on jars in a dimly lit part of the restaurant are not helpful . Especially to older Customers .
    I requested a small amount of table decoration for my husbands 80th birthday, but can't say it was evident.
    Two of the three of us were not thrilled with the main course. Mine was luke warm to start with, and the waitress didn't check early enough to make it worthwhile reheating it. It was also supposed to be a smaller sized meal, but it was enough for 2 people who have smaller appetites.
    We all liked the pudding.
    In my opinion the restaurant used to be a enjoyable venue, and we had taken friends there several times. The menus are not as varied, the quality of the cooking is not as good, and despite having shareholder vouchers we are unlikely to visit again.

    We were greeted very nicely and shown to our table. Because I wear hearing aids our table ws in a corner so I could sit with my back to the wall thereby reducing the amount of background noise. The food was served quite promptly and was well prepared. Plates were not too full but quite sufficient for a luncheon meal. Unfortunately some of the menu was not available but there was still a very good choice to be had. The cost was very good and comensurate with the quality of the food and atmosphere of the Inn. We have been customers before and will be again.

    W use to visit the Marsh Harrier quite regularly several months ago but was put off by some bad reviews I had read. So it was good to have an incentive to visit. Very pleasant atmosphere and good service. The menu is fairly standard with a lot of regular dishes available at other places. I like to have meals that are different to the norm. The Ham hock was very good as was the sharing plate. I am sure we will not leave it too long before we visit again.

    Amazing waiter who was very friendly professional and very attentive. Sadly our steaks were not very nice, very fatty and gristly.

    A pleasant and relaxed experience. Young family welcomed and catered for. The food was very well presented and of a good quality - just as the menu promised. we were welcomed on arrival, served by a cheerful and helpful waitress, nothing was too much trouble. The children were given bread and butter to eat whilst a wait for the food was happening, very thoughtful and reassuring.
