Restaurant description

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 with our friends to celebrate two birthdays. The food was excellent and the ambience great. We all agreed we had had a lovely evening.

    Lovely place, nice food, the girls were a bit rushed off their feet, but considering all the restrictions it was as nice as they could possibly make it and we were just glad to be out.

    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.

    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.
