Filled with history and traditional rural comfort, Elveden Inn sits on the picturesque Elveden Estate, which provides much of the seasonal produce that goes in to the menu of modern British recipes. There are also live music events, and pub quizzes that draw a regular following

Traditional British recipes are given inventive makeovers throughout the Elveden Inn menu. Light starters include black pudding potato cakes with tomato and tarragon coulis, while international additions can be found in the vegetarian options like the roasted pepper, courgette, parmesan and basil rigatoni. Juicy pork loin steak is glazed with paprika and honey, while the classic option of pork, leek and apple sausages comes served with lyonnaise onion and parsley mash, green beans and Guinness gravy.

The bar at Elveden Inn Thetford serves a range of local beers, as well as a full wine list with bottles from around the world. For dessert, there is strawberry panna cotta with almond snap, and the indulgent dark chocolate and Guinness marquise with toffee crème fraîche.

A snug rural escape with a truly accomplished menu, Elveden Inn is a 9-minute drive from Thetford Rail Station.

    Very good food ,disappointed the belly pork dish was taken off the menu, but never mind. The choice was very good anyway
    Service very good this time. Bank holiday monday was very bad service , we had to leave in the end before we were served.
    It was very busy but we had booked the table before hand.

    It's a lovely pub, nicely decorated and very clean. Food was excellent no complaints whatsoever. Staff very friendly and they do not rush you.

    It was ok. Table albeit reserved in advance was not wiped properly before we were seated e.g crumbs etc. Which was disappointing.

    When entering the elveden inn you are instantly relaxed with the surroundings and made to feel welcome by the friendly staff. The food is of good quality and is presented in a pleasing way to the eye. It was my birthday and the staff had placed balloons and a banner at the table, a very nice touch.

    Although a very busy Friday, the service was excellent. We were still there at 3.45 having booked table 1.30 so was good not to be rushed out after finishing meal. A pleasant change.

    A friend has just moved to Swafham and it was her birthday, so we decided to surprise her with lunch. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and we all (especially the birthday girl) had a fabulous time!! The Elveden Farm Shop was also very nice to visit.

    Very good and prompt service, only one small point. I requested the cheese platter for dessert and when it came the waitress said I shall fetch you a knife, which she did immediately. The problem was, there was no fork with it to eat the grapes etc. with. As there was no waitress in sight at the time, I had to get a fork from another table. The people seated opposite me commented, "customers shouldn't have to do that." Apart from that little niggle, it was very good. Nothing to do with the restaurant, but would advise people without children not to book for a Friday or Saturday luncheon as it can be overwhelmingly noisy.
