About The Swan at Lavenham
From innovative dining and afternoon tea in The Gallery Restaurant to long lunches in our modern British Brasserie; al fresco summer days in our courtyard terrace to candlelit dinner parties in our private rooms – you’ll find an assortment of dining experiences with us at our restaurants in Suffolk. Drink, sip and socialise with exquisite wines at our wine dinners or lounge in our characterful Airmen’s Bar where real ales and cocktails meet time-gone-by history.
Choice of sparkling wine/champagne poor and £78 for a bottle of champagne was rather expensive
Absolutely amazing service and food. Team have adapted to the new restriction guidelines so effortlessly there was no change in atmosphere at all. Already trying to fit another visit it soon!
Considering the issues with Covid 19 we had a faultless dining experience. I understand that there were less choices than normal but we didn’t have any problem with that.
It is obvious you have put alot of effort in to making your customers feel safe. It was lovely! Only improvement to atmosphere would have been the pianist
Under the new normal, the staff at the Swan were excellent, the food choice was limited but excelkent. Will definitely return. .
This is a beautiful hotel. Everyone we met was polite helpful to a fault and friendly. Spotlessly clean and they have mastered a way to keep everyone safe in this new world without losing any of the enjoyment of staying in such a special hotel. We will be back.
Staff very friendly was very happy to eat on restaurant because of covid 19 everything was in place to make you feel comfortable and safe
Could have done with some music in background.
We were very pleased to be able to come out for lunch after such a long time in isolation! We were very impressed with the new arrangements following the Covid. Food and service excellent, as always. Thanks to all for your hard work..
The swan is very clean super service and well run Ian’s set in lovely lavenham
I wanted to say a sincere thank you to all the staff and the thoughtfulness that had gone on behind the scenes. The staff showed so much kindness in a situation where anxiety was present in everyone. It was moving to see how much care they all showed. In addition the food was delicious. I would certainly recommend the Swan as the perfect place during this time of a new norm.
Fantastic food, lovely Sunday lunch in the gallery, great service and James, the Manager is such a star, a real asset to you, all really really good, only comment I would make is that in the absence of a pianist, some classical music on a music system would have added to the atmosphere and empty tables could be laid, just to give the room more appeal
Good arrangements in place to make this enjoyable and relaxed. Staff did well as new/new to additional measures required to be in place. Had a lovely afternoon tea.
Excellent stay can’t wait to come back again!
More vegetarian menu options please. Otherwise, a fantastic dining experience with friendly staff and service and delicious food.
Excellent experience, good to be back. Excellent systems in place to be compliant, very friendly staff. Marvellous.
Had a lovely Family lunch and a very enjoyable experience. Can’t wait to return and stay when the spa reopens. Have visited before and can’t wait to return again such a lovely ambiance.
Great hotel and service
Lovely last minute stay for 2 nights after we had a trip to Amsterdam cancelled but we love coming to lavenham and the Swan hotel especially this is our second stay but we will be back.. everyone was as you would expect lovely food and friendly staff but obviously the atmosphere was a bit strange because of the corona virus situation which is effecting us all! Just hope it’s over sooner rather than later so we can all get back to normal.. thank you Swan for looking after us..
excellent fish & chips lunch.
The wines are very expensive
Such a fab break away...thanks to everyone at The Swan who made us feel so welcome and our stay so enjoyable x
Lovely lunch with my mum, service was friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and great coffee too!
Lovely atmosphere especially with the pianist. Food was ok (Sunday menu). it was good value for money but I prefer the a la carte menu. We were a bit disappointed to not be offered any rolls but other than that the staff were attentive.
A very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. Plenty of seating in the various lounge areas to relax and enjoy an after meal coffee.
