What people say about us...
We were travelling to Swaffham and looking for somewhere to have a light lunch. What a lucky find.
Good choice of sandwiches, ploughmans etc. Full lunch menu also. Judging by the food whizzing past us looked delicious. The whole place is well presented and clean everywhere. Recommend the ploughmans tasty cheese with warm crusty roll and a huge salad. Excellent throughout.
This pub was a good find. Very good quality home cooked food. Found nothing of this standard for miles.
They can handle different dietary restrictions with ease, and our Gluten Free requirement caused no problems whatsoever. Eaten here many times now and its always good.
The menu is extensive and varied with either 'Off-Board' choices from 3 Specials boards, one of which offers 2 courses - starter/main - main/desert for a very reasonable price', or from the again extensively varied 'Bar Menu'.
Good portion size too. On my last visit, I had the Pan Fried Cod on a bed of Spicy Bean Stew, topped with Bacon, which was delicious.
Sunday Roast tastes just like Mums. Enormous yorkshire pudding and loads of lovely tasty gravy. Vegetables were cooked perfectly with plenty of them and good choice of roast meats - Lamb, Turkey & Beef. Everything homemade and you can taste it too.
Lovely atmosphere with real fire and friendly staff. Nothing too much trouble which makes a very refreshing change. Will definitely call again when visiting Kings Lynn.
Saturday evening,advised to book early, did so and can understand why, Soon filled up and that is a good sign. Shown to the dining room, tables and decor set very nice, waiting staff in matching color attire. Menu's presented by a very charming, polite, helpful member of staff as ALL the staff were.
The meal came, every dish was freshly cooked served hot and on hot plates, The five of us in the party could not fault the service, the staff, the decor or the quality of the food served.
The waitress had all the time in the world for us and with a smile also the owner/manageress had time to ask if everything was satisfactory. What a pleasure to dine out and be treated like a customer, absolutely top marks all round to all of the staff not to forget the team out the back at The Carpenters Arms.
Should be the Pub Grub of The Year. Will definitely be back for this one.
