Very nice place, nice rooms which are finished to a high standard, bar and restaurant nice also. Relatively small but has a nice feel. Staff ultra helpful and accommodating. Nice town and area also. Definitely recommend and value for money.

We're long time fans of this restaurant because we live in the vicinity. However, since they renovated their greenhouse/conservatory, the new menu prices are much higher -- and quite out of step with the prices of restaurants in the same vicinity. We hope they will consider review of their pricing, especially of their alcohol, or permit BYOB. Considering the quality... More

Met some friends here - we had drinks which were, imho, over priced. A glass of white wine is £9 for a small glass. So two glasses of white wine and two halves of beer were £24 which I thought rather excessive. The place is clean, friendly and tidy. It's also rather quiet, so when talking be careful about the...

Lovely food, quick & friendly service. We sat in the front, overlooking the street, not in the restaurant which is situated behind the bar area. Very attractive lunch menu Either visit

We had an anniversary dinner at the Swan late in January 2017. Both the meal, and service were excellent, although one or two items on the menu may be a little “overpriced/expensive” (The Beef Wellington at over £30 comes to mind). It was a Monday evening in January, and the dining room was all but empty, had it been full... More

We booked for Sunday lunch and before our date received a couple of welcome e mails which is a nice touch. We ate in the relatively new extension which is by far the best location. It looks out onto the garden so is light and a nice feeling of space although as is usual these days the tables are too... More

We went on a recommendation - although the food was tasty we were disappointed it was served warm and the plates were cold. Probably been waiting in the kitchen for service? 3 of the plates were collected after we had finished the meal ,but for some reason my plate wasn't taken until I went to ask for it to be... More

Popped into Long Melford for lunch as we were staying in Lavenham for a Christmas break. Great service from the staff and all the food we ordered was tasty and well cooked. Lovely gin cocktails to try. Nice and relaxed vibe to the pub. Well done!

We came to this restaurant last month for my birthday, it was truly amazing. The staff are attentive and the food is out of this world. We always order canapes and the ones served here were amazing, we also received amuse-bouche which again was brilliant and a nice touch. Starters and mains were equally exceptional and I cannot wait to... More
