Recently experienced the set Christmas lunch at the Swan. The staff were very efficient and although there were 14 of us with a few very young children the food was all served without any delays or problems. To be honest I would like to apologise if we made too much noise for the other diners. I really enjoyed my duck... More

We went to The Swan with friends expecting a general lunch menu but found they had a Beaujolais menu which was slightly more expensive but included a glass of Beaujolais. The menu was quite limited but we decided to have this. The wine was good, much better than we expected and the coq au vin, which 5 of us had... More

We dined at the sister establishment to The Swann (The Hadleigh Ram) and were so impressed that we thought that we would try The Swann and were not disappointed. Some similarities in style of presentation and cuisine and interior decor. Good cooking, presentation and service.

We went for one of the Beaujolais evenings which was an early Christmas present for my husband. The waitress staff were very friendly and welcoming. The Beaujolais this year is lovely and complimented our meal wonderfully. The food was absolutely fantastic and the service very good. Will go again, but for a special occasion. The Swan has recently been refurbished... More

Visited the Swan on Wednesday for lunch with a friend who lives in the town. We sat at a lovely window table and found it hard to choose from the extensive menus - which read very well - and we were not disappointed with anu of our choices. We plumped for the 'proper' restaurant end of the menu, with a... More

Decided to treat ourselves to what we thought would be a special meal as on holiday. Selected the special set menu, starter and main. Starter inedible and was then told it was being withdrawn from menu. Main course was good but nothing special. wine very expensive. Only offered £2 refund off bill, as they said we were just being charged... More

An upmarket restaurant in an old building which obvious was a pub in the past. Always seems busy and reservations are advisable. The food is very good and there is an wide choice of interesting dishes. Prices are on the high side for Long Melford. Staff are pleasant and service is efficient. A place for a special meal rather than... More

visited here with a friend and were so glad we did. We wanted a light lunch and opted for their "light bites" menu. We both opted for the fish finger sandwich and wow! The fish fingers are home made with spanking fresh fish and crispy batter, expertly cooked, on home made baps together with homemade tartare sauce and skin on... More
