Overview | Gallery | Historical info | Public transport | Map

An attractive, large pub with several drinking areas. The wood panelled lounge has a large fireplace and many photos or local interest. It's located close to the listed bridge over the Waveney which forms the county border with Norfolk.

According to Alfred Hedges' 1976 book, "Inns and Inn Signs of Norfolk and Suffolk", the Black Swan is "invariably known as the Mucky Duck". Whether it's still known locally by that name, we don't know.

The Roman satirist, Juvenal, jokingly refered to a black swan as a "rara avis" (rare bird) - it first appears as an inn sign in the 16th cent. Today it is also the emblem of Western Australia.
