We were delighted and privileged to be the first guests in Room 10 and how lovely it was. A complimentary glass of prosecco on arrival was a lovely touch and got us in the mood to relax straight away. The suite was beautifully finished and equipped with lovely original features mixed with modern facilities. The copper bath tub in the... More

We had a lovely experience at The Swan. The kids' menu isn't advertised on the outside (nor, it appears, the full a la carte selection), so we very nearly dined elsewhere, but upon asking, they did indeed have a menu for little ones. We sampled the canapes, which were all quite delicious (and the 9 year old sampled frog legs... More

Always fabulous service and the food is excellent. Quite pricey so a destination place only for us but we do tend to have special occasion meals here and they never disappoint.

There is much to admire about the Long Melford, though it still has a little way to go to equal our favourite places. Apart from one inexcusable exception (they had run out of marmalade at breakfast), there was little to fault. And what I did like about it was the fact that, my beloved marmalade apart, you do get the... More

Having been here a number of times we fancied a high quality meal to see out the year and knew we would be well looked after. Since we were last there they have opened a deli and extended the restaurant (opened in December) and have really developed it to a high standard. More importantly the food remains excellent I generally... More

What a great start to 2017! We came for lunch on New Year's Day and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Being New Years Day there was a limited menu on (which was fine) but I was shocked to see there was no starters to choose from. However having said that the main courses were very large and filling. We had the... More

Interesting menu, but it was a shame we couldn't have a Christmas menu (only for parties of 4 or more). Service was friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere good as always, and loving the new deli.

We had a lovely time at The Swan, staff were excellent. The room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The en-suite was fab and the shower was amazing (best I've ever had) The breakfast was very tasty. I would recommend The Swan to everyone.

Lovely welcome by great staff, the room was delightful with a great bathroom, a huge deep tub! The breakfast was just adequate, one had to ask for preserves, salt and pepper, more toast, more coffee, these should have been provided on the table. The breakfast was tasty. The smell of paint was overpowering but unavoidable.
