Restaurant was very good on two previous dinners, hence return for anniversary celebration. 7.0 pm booking. Couple. A pleasant dining room. We ordered drinks, starters, and main course from a comprehensive menu. The food was nicely presented in typical 'fine dining' style but without much culinary flare which I expected at these prices. The Lavenham lamb was a disgrace, it... More

Brunch at The Swan - 07/05/17 Ignored by staff when we arrived. After requesting a menu and having to order at the bar a 3/4 of an hour wait for food. During the wait we were entertained by a complaining customer. My food looked and tasted as if it had been cooked the day before, very over cooked Crab and... More

Had a really nice meal here, food a bit deceiving as I ordered scallops and what I got was mini scallops, so not worth the price, and for mains I ordered the crab, rather disappointing as it had bits of shell in it so rather off putting

Wow - what a fab place to stay. We had the new room (number 10 I think) which offers a separate living area. Nice idea that you can leave the room without going through the restaurant and bar if you wish. Not cheap but a great place for an indulgent break!

I went there today for lunch. I ordered wild sea bass at £22. The size of the fish was ridiculously small about a third of a fillet. Came out hungry. Good for weight loss I guess.

Came here for lunch with a friend. Sat in the bar which overlooks the main street. The full Menu is interesting but expensive for a country eatery. I chose Burger, with salad and skinny fries and my friend chose Queen Scallops and an antepaste plate of meats and crackers and cheese. Burger was cooked as requested and was good. I... More

The food was absolutely fantastic and everybody truly loved their meal that we came back the next day again!!! The staff was incredibly friendly and... More
