Like most places that were open prior to Suffolk entering tier 4, the Swan and Southwold were quiet. Every effort was made to ensure we enjoyed the experience and that is exactly what it is, an experience, rather than just a meal.

We had a delightful afternoon tea with you. The afternoon tea-selection was inspired and made a fresh change from the usual sandwichs. Great value for money in a relaxed, sumptuous setting 10 out of 10. We will be back again soon.....

We had an absolutely fantastic family lunch... perfect food, service and ambience and a brilliant experience to get us in the festive spirit. Thank you so much Swan... used to stay as a child with my family, and although the look and feel is very different... just as wonderful an experience with our own children. Faultless!
