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.

    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.

    Relaxed and comfortable. Had to wait a while but they were really busy. Still enjoyed it.

    food ok waiting time for meal service dreadful (45mins+) not good enough ,as not many customers at the time.I think staffing levels need reviewing!!!
    This was our second visit ,the first was equally bad (very long wait nearly 1 1/2 hours despite booking !!) NOT ENOUGH STAFF for the size of the venue won't be coming again

    Roast dinner very tasty, good potatoes.Plenty of gravy. Parsnips slightly underdone and hard in the centre. Rest was fine. Overall cost slightly higher than competitors, but compensated by pleasant surroundings and ambience. Staff very attentive and helpful.

    Service was pleasant and attentive. Food was enjoyable and good value. Parking is a little limited for popularity of restaurant.
