Swanton Morley was our final stop in Norfolk last night and Darby's was the first of the two pubs we tried in the village. In fact, I thought it was the best pub of the day. I didn't spend too much time inside. But the bar area looked nice enough and there were a couple of dogs chilling out. We sat at the rear where there is a smoking/barbecue area on a patio and a larger garden with a childrens' assault course with play equipment. The ale selection was one of the best I'd seen during my travels yesterday - Greene King IPA & Abbot, Lacons Legacy, Woodfordes Flagonry & Adnams Broadside & Ghost Ship. In addition, there were 2 real ciders from Abrahalls, which I hadn't expected - Tutti Frutti & Ruby Tuesday. I got the feeling that they had only just started selling them, as the barman didn't know the price. One of 2 good pubs in the village.

I don't usually write a review but felt compelled after the appalling experience we received yesterday evening at Darbys.

We received the worst meal we've had in a long time.

I had the locally reared lamb burger which was thin and didn't even fill the bun. Roadside vans serve burgers which taste better than what we ate.

We were all extremely disappointed with our meal and can't understand why during this time of a recession why people aren't trying to run a good business.

The food has definaitly improved with four or five handpull bitters worth a poke with a sharp stick.

25/5/07 My wife and I went for a meal to celebrate my birthday. We arrived at 20:30hrs and by 21:00hrs we had not been aksed what we would like for our meal despite the 4 people behind us being asked before us.

Proceeded to walk out never to return.

Very Very poor.
