Long Melford Swan - Pub in Suffolk

Last cache: 07:16:22, Tuesday 19 February 2019

Hall Street, Long Melford, CO10 9JQ, Suffolk
England, United Kingdom

For lovers of luxury and modern food, a contemporary Suffolk-village inn run with dedication and flair. We cannot wait to visit

Long Melford – home to TV's Lovejoy – is as achingly pretty as a Suffolk village can be, and the Swan is in the middle of it. Enter the airy bar, with blond oak beams and pale blue palette, an open fire, background music, original art, the odd dozing dog. In the restaurant: cool tartan carpeting and bold feature walls, shining glasses and upholstered chairs. As for the food, it's modern, Suffolk-local and executed with flair, from the Eggs Royale with house smoked salmon at breakfast to the canapés for gourmets (the mackerel tartare & yuzu dressed crab is fabulous) to Skate au Torchon, creamed white bean & bacon, capers, preserved lemon and garden herbs.Parents can relax in the terraced, parasol'd garden; drinkers can choose whatever they fancy: a peach bellini, an espresso Martini, a Sancerre rosé, a pint of Green King IPA.
