Third meal in this pretty pub in the last 8 weeks
Each one worse than the next... service is ok but the menu is to complicated for the team trying to cook it... canapé’s are horrific... even a bit stale on the last occasion. Staff/management absolutely uninterested in feedback.. asked if everything was okay, and didn’t even wait for the answer.
Needs Direction and Discipline.

Beautiful Garden nice Wine list.

We were staying in one of the rooms at The Swan and chose to eat in the restaurant. We were not disappointed. The restaurant opened up on to a terrace where meals were also served. The was a good choice on the menu, the food good and reasonably priced. The wines were equally varied and at a price to suit most pockets. Our waitress was friendly and very efficient. We were not disappointed and left looking forward to breakfast the following morning.

Thank you to the kind staff for squeezing me in for Sunday lunch at short notice and making up a table in the bar area, this area was really pleasant to dine in. The prices of the main courses and Sunday lunches are a little over the average budget wise however certainly worth it. We had roast chicken dinner and I had guinea fowl which was sensational. Cooked really well, tasted very good and the presentation was a firm 10/10. I had preferred to been offered a side as once the main course arrived it was swiftly realised I could have done with a potato side dish to accompany. A missed opportunity of up selling! This being said there was a generous portion of vegetables provided with the courses and these were shared and enough. I really do rate this place for the exceptional food, good wine selection and friendly staff. The restaurant and it's decor is pretty spot on also. Leading the way in the restaurant stakes for Long Melford in my opinion.

This is a lovely restaurant, elegantly decorated and where we sat a great view of the garden. The food was excellent with a wide choice and local products the cocktails were also excellent. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. A lovely place for a special occasion or just to go for dinner -as we did

Starters very small and overpriced. We had all finished before one of our party had even got theirs. First choice wine not available, wine list very expensive for a pub, very little under £30.
Mains, lobster very small , all fish excellent .asked for accompaniments took 5 minutes leaving it to cool. Music too loud requested to turn down after 5 minutes Had to ask again. The fish made up for poor service and tiny starters, won’t rush back
