One of our favourite iconic sights on the Norfolk coastline will be celebrating its 230th birthday in 2020! The red and white striped Lighthouse at nearby Happisburgh, built in 1790 was originally one of a pair and is the oldest working light in East Anglia and the only independently run lighthouse in Great Britain. It is now maintained and operated entirely by voluntary contributions.Read More

Following the recent restoration and refurbishment following the devastating fire at The Ingham Swan in September 2017, it’s quite strange to see how it looked nearly 30 years ago – things have certainly changed around here since then!Read More
Last night at our pre-launch dinner we brought together people that are important to us - who have had a hand in re-building this remarkable building and those who we believe can firmly help us to tell the story of this restaurant with roots to help us spread the word that 'We’re Back.'
