First time we have eaten here and loved it. One of the best menus in the area and lookling forward to return visits to try everything else. Service was attentive and friendly. We clashed with some larger tables so there was a bit of a wait between starters and main which wouldn't have been a problem but we had a... More

Visited here today, the food was delicious especially the banana bread with peanut butter mouse!! The Henny Swan is well decorated and has a great atmosphere as the staff are so friendly. It is located with the beer garden on the river which must be amazing in the summer!!would definitely recommend!

We took my son for dinner for his birthday. We were all so impressed. The venue was lovely, clean and cosy, although a very chilly evening. The staff were attentive but not overly so. The food was superb, lots of choice and very tasty and well presented. Will definitely return

Came here with my mum for lunch one Friday afternoon. Was warm and cosy with a real fire on the go all the time, Food was tasty. However, I do think the price of the sandwich was high for what it was (£16 for two) we opted to pay extra for chips (£1) and only were given half a dozen... More

A little off the beaten track but so worth tracking down. We visited The Henny Swan near Sudbury for midweek lunch. The food was truly excellent, beautifully presented and served by polite professional friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble, will definitely return and recommend to friends and family

Fabulous food well presented and to a very high standard. Unusual and well matched flavours. The trout terrine was superb as was the beetroot sorbet. An eclectic menu with something for all tastebuds. Warm and friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. I was out for a girlie evening but the surroundings would work equally as well for families, couples or a... More

We booked a few days previously. The place was buzzing when we arrived. The fire was going and it was lovely and toastie. We ordered... More

I and a party of friends had a party booking at the Swan. Good service and good food, exceptional service give such a large party. Excellent value all round and of course the log fire to welcome us in.

Having never heard of the Henny Swan before making asking a music artist (Polly Haynes) if she was playing anywhere local to Clacton/colchester.. here was the only place she was semi locally.
