We popped in here for lunch and discovered it was the sister restaurant of somewhere we had visited the day before in Lavenham which was also very good. Menus are not the same and we were in fact looking for something different on this occasion - a light lunch so as not to spoil a special meal booked for the... More

Dining on my own and trying to find a place that wasn't beef-based products with chips, I trotted across the road from the Bull and found The Swan. Having glanced at the menu and seen 'Oysters' I stepped straight inside. I was greeted and seated and took a full look at the menu, it was exactly the sort of thing... More

We had booked a large family group to eat here the evening before a family wedding - Unfortunately half of the group were delayed by around 45 minutes - but The Swan staff coped amazingly. We were very aware how much trouble this must have caused on a busy Friday evening - but despite a few people in our group... More
