Poorly lit patio area, barely able to read the menu in the evening as the light was going and we has opted to have a drink outside whilst choosing from the menu, we were not even offered a candle. The food was nicely presented but nothing special. Over priced

Just enjoyed a delicious meal to celebrate our grandson's GCSE results. Food was superb. The staff were very friendly without being intrusive. Would certainly recommend to all

From the moment we walked in. We felt relaxed. All the staff were very helpful and polite. The garden outside is a lovely place to sit. My husband and I had a few cocktails before dinner. The menu had lots of very nice dishes, it was very hard to choose. We both had steak and shared some lobster. Absolutely loved... More

We hadn't been to Long Melford for a while and went to this restaurant after a local shopkeeper recommended it. A good decision. Despite some slight slip-ups the meal was tasty in many ways and it promises well for the future. The Hummous starter was delicious. I had the whiting, pea puree and chips. My wife the cod loin on...

We stayed at the Swan for a whole week on a half board basis. We ate each night in the restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed every meal. The portion sizes were good. We were concerned that there may not be sufficient variety for seven nights, but this wasn't a problem and the steak nights provided increased choice. All of the staff... More

After taking a walk through this beautiful village we decided to have lunch at the Swan prior to going to visit Melford House. We all decided on fish, whiting, cod & bass. It was beautifully presented and tasted fantastic. As it was lunch we only had a main course but on another visit I think we would have to try... More

MY RATING IS FOR ACCOMMODATON, NOT AS A RESTAURANT. We stayed in room 3. The accommodation was nice and very clean. The breakfast was outstanding and the staff were all very friendly. Several things to see in Long Melford and it's only a short drive away from Lavenham. My only suggestion would be a bigger television. Also, if you want... More
