In pouring rain we reversed the half mile back to the junction and headed downstream the short way to Littleport. Once moored up we went for a pint in The Swan, conveniently situated by the riverside, and booked a table for Saturday lunch.

Our Saturday visitors, L-R John, Alan, Libby and Himself
and Valerie Ann - she may be saying something a bit rude to me...
And the Saturday lunch at the Swan; a bit disappointing really.
Starters at about a fiver, main courses a tenner generally. For one of our party their main course failed to turn up. Waiting staff said it had been forgotten, kitchen staff said it had been dropped. They hurriedly put together another meal which arrived when the rest of us had finished and it was very evident that the second attempt had been thrown together. To be fair, we were not charged for this and that is a credit to them.
Staff were pleasant and friendly.
Food was just 'pub-grub' and heavily supported by chips. I felt that given the location The Swan could do better with a bit more imagination and culinary skill this could be a great little eatery.
