Lovely venue, atmosphere and staff. Food is amazing! Thank you!
Enjoyed our lunch at the Long Melford Swan. Staff very friendly and helpful. Eating in the garden was very comfortable, heating available too. The food was excellent, we all had something different but each meal was top quality made from very fresh and local produce.
Friendly and helpful staff. Good food and lovely experience for outdoor dining on a fairly cold day.
Thank you for your review, kindest regards
My husband and I, made a very short notice decision to book a table at the Swan having dined there many times pre Covid- 19. It has undergone a fabulous and magical makeover , even though it had already been a very attractive and inviting venue. The outdoor dining area was beautifully planned with functioning and effective heaters. The staff were all very friendly whilst remaining professional. I ordered the mushroom and stilton burger which was divine and my husband loved his main meal - both plates were presented beautifully and the food was of a high standard. We will definitely return again soon and can't wait to be able to enjoy the restaurant indoors as the transformation has added to its appeal.
Thank you for your review, we hope to see you again very soon. Kindest regards
Absolutely delicious roast Sunday lunch . Both beef and pork were cooked to perfection and plenty of flavoursome tasty veg . Desserts were really tasty too. Nice outside dining area
Thank you for your review. Kindest regards
My friend Sabrina and I had a wonderful three course meal here at The Swan in Long Melford, the service was lovely and the food was so tasty! They even made us special drinks that were also amazing. Highly recommend!
Thank you for your review, we hope to see you again soon. Kindest regards
It was great place to eat and the service was very good.
Thank you for your review, kindest regards
Not child friendly at all. Had an early dinner reservation for 5.15 with my family, don’t recommend going there with children. It looked like a family friendly establishment. My three year old was being pretty normal waking around and just being three, I was told to keep him under control . Not a nice feeling for a parent and kind of ruined our first night out on our first trip away after lock down. Haven’t eaten out in the evenings at risking that again .
Dear Tara, I am so sorry you were disappointed when you visited the Swan, we work hard to provide the best service possible. Working under the current rules where everyone should remain at their table is very difficult, especially for children, I apologies this was not handled better. Kindest regards
We had a super sunny lunch in the garden. Lots of choice on the menu and fabulous friendly service. Perfect perfect for our first lunch out after lockdown thank you.
Dear Julie, Thank you for your review. Kindest regards
Great food and courteous service. Easy booking and well managed.
Dear Gary, thank you for coming to visit the Swan & posting a review, we will hopefully see you again in the future. Kindest regards
Scrumptious food, excellent friendly service, very interesting menu, good wine list, fair prices. All in all a fabulous outdoor dining experience
Friendly staff, nice outside space and inside too when we are allowed in. Great food.
Dear Phil, Thank you for your review, we hope to see you agin very soon. Kindest regards
We had a fantastic Sunday lunch at the Long Melford Swan. 2 courses for £22. I had a scotch egg to start, which was in an exquisite mustard sauce. We both had roast beef which came with loads of different vegetables and a delicious gravy, and my husband had ale cake for dessert which was a little dry but still nice.
All the food was well-presented and the Yorkshire puddings were the size of satellite dishes!!
Their Covid measures were reassuring, they have covered areas and heaters so even though it was a chilly day we were comfortable.
Overall a very enjoyable lunch and we’d definitely return if we’re in the area.
Thank you for your review, we hope to see you again in the future. Kindest regards
Lovely meal, great staff and I would definitely return
Thank you for your review, we hope to see you again very soon. Kindest regards
Excellent service & tasty food. Cosy atmosphere with the outside lights and heater. Would thoroughly recommend and will definitely return.
Dear Sarah, Thank you for your review, we look forward to seeing you again very soon. Kindest regards
I had the mushroom, Stilton and caramelised red onion burger and it was absolutely delicious. The service was prompt and friendly. Outside only allowed at time of writing and we were originally directed to a high table with bar stools which didn’t look very comfy so asked to sit elsewhere- which wasn’t a problem. Felt very Covid safe. Had lovely catch up lunch with friend and didn’t feel rushed even though booking was for 90 mins only. Will definitely go back.
Thank you for your review, we are so glad you enjoyed your visit to the Swan. Kindest regards
The warm sunshine, proprietors and welcoming servers made the occasion very special. Our lunchtime meal was delicious and packed with flavour. Highly recommend you try the new and very creative menu. Lovely venue and good value for day out in Long Melford.
Dear Jennifer, thank you for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed your lunch with us. We hope to see you again very soon.
Varied menu, lovely food, plenty of space between tables. Great value.
Dear Horatio, Thank you for your review, we hope to see you again soon at the Swan. Kind regards
Lovely food, great atmosphere and nice outdoor decor.
Slightly disappointed they didn’t allow me to have 2 for 1 cocktails as advertised. They then took down the advertisement however they would allow me to modify a meal to suit a fussy child.
Thank you for your review, we value your comments, we are constantly working to offer the best customer experience to everyone that visits us. I apologies that the cocktail special advertised on social media last year was not still available. Kindest regards
Could park very near to the Swan. Very clean and comfortable, staff excellent. Menu fine for lunch, would have liked more choices for desserts.
Dear Linda, thank you for your review, we will be launching a new full menu in May when the pub is able to open fully. We have been running a reduced menu this month as we are only partially open, we have some lovely additional desserts on the specials menu this week as this has been mentioned by a few guests. Kindest regards
Was a nice enough chicken ceasar salad. Halloumi side was small for the price. Wine menu fairly decent, although ordered 1 large then 2 medium glasses of sauv and got 3 large all 3 times! Garden area is attractive. £80 for lunch not cheap but hopefully will improve menu once open inside so will give it another try then
Dear Ryan, thank you for your review, we are running a reduced menu until we reopen fully, we hope you return when we are fully open. Kindest regards
Lovely food but poor service. We had a 2 hour time slot but didn't receive our first drinks for 40 minutes. The waitress was nice but the man who seemed to be the manager was harassed. As it was the first weekend after lockdown we were prepared to let it go. Not sure if I would return.
Dear Jay, thank you for your review, we value your comments and opinions. I apologies that your experience at the Swan was not as it should be, I do hope you will return in the future. Kindest regards
First meal out of lockdown, fabulous terrace with quality heating and lovely music.
Food was good but service a bit slow but didn’t matter for us as we were just glad to be out!
Will return soon.
Thank you for your review, we look forward to seeing you again soon. Kindest regards
Superb as usual added to this the swan have made a real effort to accomodate the restrictions by enhancing their al fresco dining with patio heaters and some under cover tables
Dear Alison, thank you for your review, we hope to see you at the Swan again very soon. Kind regards
Sunday lunch was excellent although some items on menu had already run out at 13:00. Service was erratic with some orders forgotten but very apologetic. Lovely setting and comfortable outside furniture
Staff need training in Service, plus there were too many which encourages chatting. Could have had 1 behind the bar to prepare drink orders, then 3 waiting at tables. Half an hour for salmon and scrambled eggs is a bit much!
Thank you for your review, we value you sharing your experience with us. Kindest regards
Friendly but professional service. Great food, we all loved everything we chose. Only one tiny criticism was very limited dessert menu. We will definitely be going again as soon as we can eat indoors or the weather improves!
Dear Gillian, thank you for your review, there will be a full dessert menu coming in May when we reopen fully. We look forward to seeing you again at the Swan very soon. Kindest regards
It was out first visit to a hospitality setting following the lifting of the lockdown restrictions and the Swan made for a delightful evening. The ambience was super with twinkling lights under a covered gazebo with the benefit of ceiling heaters to take off the chill. The food was very tasty and the service prompt and friendly. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Dear Caroline, Thank you for your review, we hope to see you agin very soon. Kindest regards
Beautiful setting. Outside heating. Lovely staff.
Tania, Thank you for your review. Kindest regards
Very well set up under covid rules.
The only issue we had was the table beside us was smoking.
When booking we were advised that all under cover sections outside would be non smoking, and smokers would have to be in the open space but this was not the case. Eating our meal whilst a table of young girls were smoking wasn’t the most pleasant experience.
Dear Krystle, Thank you for your review, we have asked all customers not to smoke in the covered areas & have tried our best to enforce this. Kindest regards
Friendly & helpful. Excellent service & food from festive menu
Love this place! Always well-cooked and presented food, delicious cauliflower cheese and red cabbage alongside our beef roast. Back of the restaurant is best, overlooking lovely garden. Atmosphere cosy, friendly and welcoming staff. Highly recommended
Love the food and the cocktails here, shame they have cut the cocktail menu massively.
Thoroughly enjoyed as usual!
This is one of our favourite places.
Food lovely as always but very shocked to see two tables of mixed households - 3 ladies who where blatantly cheer-sing getting to gather for their Christmas get together and talking about where they planned to be at Christmas - Southwold and with family ... so definitely not all from 1 household as required by law. The table to our other side on the circular table had 3 sitting one side together the 4 th on his own the other side - talking about Uni so guessing just returned so hence all sitting separately but without any thought to other dinners if the family think it’s unsafe they why put him out side close to our table which was not two metres away.
I am shocked that staff did not check and we only stayed for our mains as to be honest felt unsafe .
Everyone has to do their part and I am well aware that it is very hard for the hospitality industry but breaking the rules so blatantly is not good for business as we will not be returning .
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Swan long Melford, superb meal and excellent service, lovely decor, and can really recommend the expresso martini 🍸
Delicious reasonably priced Sunday lunch. Love coming to the Swan the staff are super friendly and welcoming we all thoroughly enjoyed our lunch.
Will be back very soon!
Poached eggs cooked to perfection, lovely runny yolks .
Swan breakfast with smooth, creamy scrabbled eggs complimented by sweet vine tomatoes, crispy bacon and a good pork sausage. Not having to cook breakfast is perfect start to a day.
Enjoyed a lovely meal out on Friday evening with my husband as we wanted to support a local business after lockdown. I had the vegetarian options and my husband had sea bass. The mushroom Wellington was very tasty and my husband says the Sea Bass was spot on. The interior and layout is beautiful the service attentive and food perfect. Would definitely recommend.
