Best Birthday meal!

Wow this place is 5* the food is out of the world and wow the setting and the staff are all there at your call. I spent my Birthday there in the private dining room that looks in the Kitchen where you can see the chefs preparing your dinner. Please stop by this pub when you visit long Melford.

Visited for lunch on a Saturday - we were the last to secure an unbooked table so I'd recommend booking if you can. There is a main menu with supplementary vegetarian menu which has several choices for each course; the wait staff also ask if the table has any allergies. The croque monsieur and mushrooms and spinach on brioche were... More

An extensive menu, food well cooked and presented and staff who not only knew their job but did it well. A little on the pricey side but all things considered well worth it.

We dropped in for lunch and were promptly served by a very friendly waitress. We really only wanted s sandwich but the closest they did was a Croque Monsieur. Most of the light snacks were in the £7-8 range which is quite expensive. However it was a pleasant place to have a pint and a snack. Most impressed with the... More

Went for dinner on Saturday evening with firends - group of 6 in total. Good welcome from all the staff, friendly, helpful, our waitress enjoyed some banter with some of the group.

On Friday 27th Feb I went to The Swan to celebrate my wife's birthday. This was our 4th or 5th visit in 10 months to the best Pub in the small village, which we now call home. I went to the Pub with a good appetite and with the intention of having a good meal. I have learnt to choose... More

I am, however, pleased that you have enjoyed your visits on several occassions before despite the difficulty of getting out with young children, which I know can be difficult.

I went there on the off chance as the menu on the outside looked intriguing this last Saturday lunch, I was not disappointed !! The food was glorious from start to finish! From our "small plates" of cockle popcorn to our Pettit fours, and yes we were encouraged to have all four courses as well as coffee and petit fours... More

I ate here on 9 Feb in the company of a friend. It was by chance and was a lucky find. We shared a starter (baked Camembert with truffled honey and garlic toasts) which was very good, tho it was fortuitous that I ordered extra bread as the toast was insufficient. I forget our main courses, not because the dishes... More

Went to the Swan for Valentines. I had looked online before booking and thought they had a great selection on the menu. When I phoned to book, I asked if there would be a set menu for valentines night. I was told no but there would be additional "sharing" dishes. We had a lovely evening and the food was good... More
