Well impressed with the whole experience (Sunday Lunch). Best Sunday lunch we've had since moving back this way. Ambience, staff,wine, cigars - all top notch! Positive criticism - better cups for coffee ( don't have to use ALL V&B), desserts need tweaking and ditch the star fruit!! Honestly though, l know how hard you guys must be working. Hat's off...

This was our first visit to this place and won't be our last. The ambience or pub was relaxing, the food was fantastic. We didn't have a starter (I couldn't eat 3 courses) my main was skate wing, it was cooked perfectly, the dish light and therefore left room for the dessert, I choose the 6 selection cheese board, which...

The Swan has an excellent menu, a nice selection of ales and a very pleasant and sheltered outdoor patio. Recommended when visiting Long Melford.

My wife and i visited this restaurant last week, the experience was amazing from the minute we arrived. Cocktails to die for, were served to us in the beautiful garden. The menu was fresh and very well thought out, the starter of Scottish king scallops the best I've ever had!!! Thumbs up to the Swan a true dining experience.

Don't waste money on their lunchtime set menu. We booked for Saturday lunchtime and were properly welcomed by the pleasant staff only to be very disappointed by the tiny starter and main course options. The menus was around the £15/ head mark and realistically the ingredients cost price must have been no more than £2 ! Even allowing for staff... More
