The Ingham Swan

Swan Corner, Sea Palling Road, INGHAM, NR12 9AB

This corner of Norfolk has an embarrassment of riches. Just a couple of miles away, at Hickling Broad, cranes and marsh harriers cause birdwatchers' hearts to flutter. The Swan itself is equally majestic; once part of Ingham Priory, just it and the adjoining church survived Henry VIII's dissolution. Along a country lane, this beautiful thatched building has been carefully transformed into a fine-dining restaurant whilst retaining the aura of a pub; visitors are always welcome at the very traditional bar for real ales from the local Woodforde's 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 inventive modern menu packed with seasonal local produce. To start perhaps, caramelised onion and Cashel Blue cheese tartlets with Serrano ham and wild roquette, leading to pan-fried halibut with chive risotto, diver-caught scallops, buttered samphire and brown shrimp butter sauce. The menu helpfully suggests wines to accompany.
