Comfortingly sumptuous, with a lightly decadent touch and a liberal sprinkling of imagination... For those looking for fine food, who have a taste for the unusual, the food at the Swan House reflects an eclectic range of influences. Lovingly English, but drawing on international flavours, the food blends classic dishes with modern touches to make genuinely creative menus.

We were on a broads holiday and stopped at Beccles on the off chance there would be somewhere decent to eat. We took a wander through the village and spied the Swan house down a side street. What caught our attention was the live music every Monday sign and after some debating we decided to give it a go. We... More

A colleague and I have been in search of an ideal place to bring our customers and executives when visiting Suffolk. We have found it at the Swan House! The service was perfect!

We had arranged to meet friends here for a meal. We were travelling a distance and as our broadband at home was down decided we would take a risk and stay here. How pleased we were to have taken that decision. Upon arrival, the friendly receptionist showed us to our room. The William room was beautifully furnished with hand carved... More

We visited this restaurant on Thursday last week for lunch with our sister in law and i can honestly say that it was one of the nicest meals that we've had in a long time! We had 3 courses for £13.95 and every course was exemplary - compliments to the chef. All the food was fresh and homemade - including... More

We came to Beccles for the first time to see our son's wedding venue White Dove Barns and asked for a recommendation for lunch.

Thanks for the splendid review. Sounds as if You dined on our extremely well priced 'House' menu, which offers 3 lunchtime courses for just £13.90. Who else in Suffolk offers such such satisfying lunches at these prices? Oh and by the way it was Carmela, our wonderful Italian Manager, who served you. More

Pleased we could make your big day so special. And yes our afternoon tea is a little unique. Baked to order scones fresh from the oven are the only way to really enjoy a classic cream tea. It may take a little more effort, but the results are worth it. And that's why we ask visitors to pre-book, as we... More

I have been visiting this restaurant for many years and it's still one of my favorites. My wife and two of our friends met up for a meal last Saturday and enjoyed an excellent evening.

"Why only 15th?" Hmmm, you've raised an interesting point there. A quick check of the Beccles top ten, shows five cafés and one cook-shop. And there lies the problem! A global review forum that lumps all together regardless of culinary genre, cost or aspiration, cannot be a true guide to where to dine, as your comment suggests. No disregard to... More
