Swan Corner, Sea Palling Road, INGHAM, NR12 9AB
From the tiny village of Ingham you can follow meandering lanes to the nearby Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a string of broadland nature reserves, renowned for rare birds. Before you head off though, you should check out The Swan. This ancient, flint-built pub and the majestic church that adjoins it are all that survive of the once-flourishing Ingham Priory. Slumbering beneath trim thatch the inn was carefully transformed into a destination dining pub and restaurant a few years back, but drinkers are always welcome at the bar for real ales from the local Grain Brewery. Chef-patron Daniel Smith trained at Le Gavroche in London and Blakeney's Morston Hall, and he sticks to his Norfolk roots with an award-winningly creative, modern menu, packed with seasonal local produce. A lazy lunch could start with chicken liver parfait with fig chutney and celeriac remoulade, followed by chorizo roast salmon, or sea salt crackling belly pork with curly kale, fennel duxelle, crispy pork fritter and cocotte potatoes. The menu includes useful matching wine suggestions.
