In the delightful village of Surlingham you'll pass through the RSPB's RSPB Church Marsh Nature Reserve where you can enjoy a pit stop at the Ferry House Inn. You can sit outside in the lovely large garden area and watch the boats go by on the river as you enjoy lunch. You'll pass the inn at the eastern side of the reserve on Ferry Road at postcode NR14 7AR. They are dog friendly if you have your canine friend with you.
In the pretty village of Loddon there's the popular Swan to consider. The inn is housed in a lovely old building which dates back to the 18th century when it was originally a coaching house. Inside there's a cosy interior with roaring fires while outside there's a nice courtyard garden. You can find them at 23 Church Cl, NR14 6LX. The pub is a short stroll from the River Chet and the historic church which dates to 1490.
