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.

Sadly it was not a good experience. We had to wait a total of 105 minutes from the time of the booking to when our main course arrived. Food, when it arrived, was pretty good but the outing was spoilt by the ridiculous waiting time. Just not acceptable- the restaurant was not that busy either.

On arrival it was warm & friendly with lovely open fires, food was good, apart from 2 of us had sea bass which was lovely but the veg with it was poor pre frozen sprouts & little potatoes, I expected better, Also we had too wait far too long between meals. We had 3 courses, and said we would like coffee but we had waited far too long for it so we paid the bill and had coffee at home.

Excellent service (as usual) at a very busy time. Staff always cheerful and helpful. Food delicious.

Very disappointing there were not enough staff and we waited 30 mins before we got our drinks, when we finally got our food one steak had to be sent back another steak was just chewy and all the meals were not very hot. We told the waitress who told the manger and the price of the steak was taken off, as we had waited so long we had no time for desserts. We have always celebrated here but doubt we will return any time soon.

Always a nice atmosphere in the Marsh Harrier and staff polite. This time I was a bit disappointed as the first thing I choose from your light bite menu was unavailable so had to choose another and was told that was also unavailable, so not a good start. The others seemed happy with their food.

We went to The Marsh Harrier in Norwich for the first time for a Sunday lunch and was left feeling very disappointed. The service was very slow and not very customer friendly (just a smile from the waitress would have been nice). Drinks arrived at the table about 1 minute before the food which was Ok, but nothing special. The food generally was warm to hot, as if it had been left standing for a while before being brought to the table. Likewise after the meal the pot of tea was luke warm at best (a new pot was brought to the table but not much better) and the coffee was again just alright. It was a shame as we'd heard good things about this restaurant and perhaps this was just a one-off though as it wasn't particularly busy we couldn't quite fathom why there were the delays or the food was not pipping hot. We will possibly try the venue again but if no better next time then we'd certainly go elsewhere.

Warm, friendly atmosphere enhanced by cosy open fireplace. Fortunately this year my Boxing Day booking wasn’t cancelled as it was last year by a last minute email telling me it was, without any mitigating reason! I was not expecting a compulsory 3 course menu especially as I only required two. However on the whole the food was good apart from vegetables tasting and looking as though they had been reheated.
