Last weekend I visited the newly created Deli opened at The Swan and was amazed at how reasonable the delectable ingredients packed sandwiches were. We even found the local crisps a penny dearer in a nearby farm shop the day after. I had a scrumptious Coronation Chicken in chunky white bread; my wife chose a generously portioned smoke salmon in... More

Set in the scenic high street of Long Melford, The Swan is a great place for a meal during your visit. The establishment is attractively laid out and has a welcoming atmosphere, and the food -although expensive, due to quality -is superb. However, for such a price one would expect better service. Unfortunately, there was NO help from the staff... More

We've been here twice now with my mother in law when visiting her as she lives nearby. Both times we've had an excellent Sunday roast - the meat is lovely and tender and the vegetables are all freshly cooked - individual jugs of gravy means there's plenty to go round and the staff are all friendly and welcoming. We've never... More

From the moment we walked through the door we were completely looked after, lots of extra touches make this a beautiful & relaxing stay. We had room 6 with the orange slipper bath, it felt very decadent! The food & service was outstanding. Ok so it's definitely not cheap but for a special occasion it is perfect.

I recently visited this attractive looking restaurant, which is also a pub with accommodation above it, with my daughter while on a weekend break at Long Melford. I am so pleased we did. The décor is smart and modern. The staff were lovely and made us feel very welcome on arrival. Our drink orders were taken straight away. The menu... More

Four of us visited tonight without booking. Could park right outside and entered very comfortable bar area where we had drinks in comfy chairs and ordered our meals. The restaurant area was modern, cosy with great lighting. Good menu choice and beautifully presented food. Helpings were smallish and sufficient. Overall a great night.

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...
