The Swan Inn in Horning is a country pub & restaurant oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for an enjoyable stay.
The Swan Inn is a majestic building overlooking a sharp bend in the River Bure. The origins of The Swan were a cottage built on the site in 1696 but the main part of the building dates from the early 19th century. It's position on the Norfolk Broads has made it a distinctive landmark for river users and locals alike, it's most recent claim to fame being the setting for two of Arthur Ransom's (author of Swallows and Amazons) children's books 'Coot Club' and 'The Big Six'.
Food & Drink
The food we love to eat at The Swan Inn is the food we serve, that's why our guests keep coming back. They trust us to get their favourites absolutely right - pub classics such as our Butcher's Choice Sausage and Mash - and to surprise them with something unexpected like our new Scottish Mussels in a White Wine and Parsley Sauce baked in a hand-rolled garlic bread crust - perfect for dipping!
Golden or ruby? Blonde or dark? Our changing selection of cask-conditioned ales features the finest from Britain's regional breweries alongside regular favourites. Each one is made using water, hops, malt and yeast - pure and simple. And each cask is carefully stored, rested, vented and served to make sure you get a proper pint, served in tip-top condition. Pop in and see what's brewing this week.
Fancy something different? We also serve a variety of ciders and spirits. As for our non-alcoholic options, choose from a selection of imaginative soft drinks and pressed fruit juices, for adults as well as younger diners. Or if you feel like something nice and hot, we serve freshly brewed coffee all day.
Our eight bedroom Innkeeper's Lodge continues The Swan Inn's tradition of welcoming travellers. It's our local charm that attracts river users and ramblers, as well as diners and drinkers from Horning, Wroxham, Stalham and Coltishall. We also welcome business and leisure travellers to enjoy some of the best bedrooms and accommodation in Norfolk.
