The Canary and Linnet Restaurant and Pub Little Fransham Breckland Norfolk is a friendly family pub located directly on the A47 between Dereham and Swaffham. When you Visit The Canary and Linnet you will enjoy great food and a variety of refreshing drinks with your family and friends. The History of The Canary and Linnet began on the 2nd of July 1954, the licence of the Chequers public house on Beeston Road in High Green was transferred to the premises that became to be known as the Canary and Linnet. The Chequers has since returned to being a private dwelling. The Morgan’s Brewery applied for the change of licence, and at first this was opposed by Fransham Parish Council. However they eventually granted the licence providing certain conditions were met including the installation of toilets! The original house (rumour suggests that it was originally an undertakers) was to become the pub and the building next door (originally a blacksmiths) was to become a cafe/club room. The new pub was given the nicknames of two local football teams as it lies exactly half way between Norwich and Kings Lynn. It is named the ‘Canary’ after Norwich City F.C, and ‘Linnet’ after Kings Lynn Town F.C. So the football connection has remained solid but we of course welcome supports of all and any teams.
Our pub is perfect for events, functions, special occasions and celebrations including: Christmas parties, New Years Eve and Day, birthday party’s, christenings, engagement party’s, anniversary party’s, hen nights, stag dos, charity nights, wakes, business conferences, engagement parties, golf parties and many more.
Whether you are local or just visiting beautiful Little Fransham or Breckland Norfolk, you will always receive a warm and friendly welcome at our Pub. We hope to see you soon.
