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.
Food was lovely once it arrived. Did wait a long time for it’s arrival and tea was cold by the time it came. It was for our wedding anniversary as we stayed in hotel . Unfortunately it was spoilt by the people on the next table talking to a waiter about Covid for a while had hoped to get away from it . Never mind.
Food was excellent as was service and reception. The Swan is always a pleasure to visit.
Beautiful food. Friendly staff
Evening meal and breakfast were very nice, however I was disappointed with the room which I felt didn’t come up to expectations. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable so I didn’t get a good nights sleep. Although I will eat at the Swan again, I won’t be staying over.
This was such a wonderful stay, the staff we’re lovely but bar staff Claire was above all such a genuinely friendly and kind person. The gnocchi was the best vegi meal I’ve ever tasted. I scored 4 for atmosphere as it would have been nice to have had the unlit wood burner and some music on at 1830 when we had our pre dinner drinks. I scored 4 for value as although I love these types of trip I feel they should more affordable so more people can afford them across the socioeconomic scale. That said I’m v glad we timed it before the new lockdown rules! Michael
i didn't think that the service was anywhere near as professional/good as our previous visits, I know that we are in horrible times at the moment but wasn't feeling any warmth.
lovely stay. Very helpful and friendly staff. Large comfortable room.. Everything we needed. Great breakfast and pleasant even meal.
Amazing place with amazing atmosphere, the food was beautiful as was the entire hotel including rooms and spa. A little bit of luxury.
Excellent food and service as usual
We had the most wonderful stay at The Swan. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was fantastic and our room was perfect. We cannot wait to return.
Great food and atmosphere , loved it . We'll be back , thanks .
Delightful! Enjoyed it all
An enjoyable lunch with my children, friendly and efficient service and the hake was a particular highlight - extremely tasty.
After getting married at The Swan 1 year ago my husband and I returned for our 1st Anniversary celebration meal. We can't thank the staff enough for making this an occasion to remember. We're looking forward to many a visit next year. We have visited The Swan on many occasions & the food, spa & staff service is always faultless.
A very nice early evening tea, in a classic Christmas atmosphere. Enjoyable.
Stunning surroundings, always book either a meal or afternoon tea every year at christmas, tables were spaced well so felt very safe.
Lovely afternoon had, food excellant could have more savoury and less sweet, just my personal taste. Got charged for something we did not have but soon rectified on query. Will be back again.
Fantastic stay, we ate far too much at dinner as we were told three courses were included in the price of our stay. It turned out we had only booked bed and breakfast! Our only feedback would be that staff should check with customers which tariff they booked before telling to order three courses. Otherwise perfect stay, thank you!
Had a very enjoyable stay at The Swan Friendly staff and everything in place for COVID
