Another great carvery. Good service by staff and very tasty food. Its all been said before, however, its great to confirm that the Station Bar is maintaining its #1 position in Swaffham. Great tasting Pavlova to follow, with coffee refills.

Turned up late on a Sunday afternoon - 4 kids and 2 adults without a booking. Received outstanding service to create some kid friendly choices from bar menu. Food was delicious. Highly recommend this pub.

Simple, clean, unassuming little bar. Cover for about 50 at full stretch. Friendly, helpful, pleasant land lord and staff. Excellent food, freshly cooked on premises. And a clean kitchen on view to the public. Highly recommended.
