Cozy suffolk pub with great food

We have been here on many occassions and always had a very good meal. Its especially nice in the winter months with the open fire blazing. Only one thing missing that would make this 5 stars for me is an espresso machine as the filter coffee on offer is very 1980's and isnt great. Aside from that... read more

Certainly a very nice meal with great meal choices. The menu is posted on the wall and seems to change often and has enough interesting choices that it is hard to make a single selection. The seating is comfortable and conversation with your companions easy. Service was excellent. Will plan to come again.

Having read the last review, I agree with everything that was said. Food is not cheap but very reasonably priced for the quality. The chalk boards are a little awkward, but as we arrived early we had plenty of time to browse. The benefit of the boards were demonstrated as they were changed at least twice on the night we...

Just moved to the area and wanted to try out this restaurant as the reviews looked good and it is my local. It is a lovely atmosphere inside, nice decor, friendly staff. The food was delicious, especially the puds! Great value for the quality of food you get. If I had to choose, the only downside is having to stand... More

Always varied menu, great atmosphere and depending on season a roaring log fire. Not a great deal of parking round the back and it's on the main road through Woolpit but make the effort it will be worth it

Had the pleasure of eating her with my wife and kids- I had a lovely steak with tasty bernaise sauce- my wife had a great Spanish chicken dish. Atmosphere informal and very friendly. Only thing is no kids menu which would be a major and simple edition. Woolpit a lovely little village and the swan is like a centrepiece Go... More

Super location and lovely pub but I really dislike ogling over fellow diners to look at the menu board situated on the walls above dining tables! Why? No need... Put menu on table or hand out - not rocket science .... Food really super though and nice selection of beers and wine.

Called in for lunch on our way through and found this lovely pub with rooms. We had a great lunch with fresh food and the service was very good. I think all the food will be of a high standard in this establishment. This is the place to visit when passing through or visiting Woolpit

Plenty of room at this Inn and an exotic menu for all tastes, the chef has travelled apparently and it shows, with dishes not to be found anywhere else to excite your taste buds quite like this place, the wine menu compliments the quality of the whole set up, impossible to be disappointed.
