Wow! I have finally got round to putting this on. I love the creaky beams, the lovely fires in winter with that indefinable smell of woodsmoke outside in the village, the wonderful food. I have stayed and eaten at The Swan for over 40 years (I first went as a child in case readers think I am 110 years old!). The current owners and management have got it 99.9% right. John the Manager has that personable touch which shows he really cares. The food in the Garden room as I call it and the Great Hall Dining room are both excellent and and extra bonus in the main dining room is the talented Andrea playing the piano. I last took my French cousin and in the break she came across, introduced herself and after a pleasant chat she had established enough of my and my cousin's taste in music to play some of our favourites. I can thoroughly recommend the hotel, the food, the music (I think Andrea only plays on Saturday evenings and Sunday lunchtimes) .I am a regular customer because it is good.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestling in the Suffolk countryside, between Bury St. Edmunds and Sudbury, is The Swan Hotel & Spa in Lavenham, perhaps one of England's most iconic hotels. The Swan dates back to the 15th century when it played a key role in Lavenham's wool trade. Today it is a quintessential English country hotel and restaurant, proud of its achievement of AA 4 Red star, two AA Rosettes & Visit England Large Hotel of the Year 2013. Ancient oak beams and inglenook fireplaces blend beautifully with rich furnishings and fabrics to create the perfect ambiance for rest and relaxation. The historic old bar boasts a wonderful collection of memorabilia, including a wall signed by British and American airmen stationed at Lavenham Airfield during World War II. The Swan is a wonderful place in which to celebrate a variety of special occasions, including romantic weddings, christenings and family get-togethers. It is also a unique venue for seminars, meetings and conferences, where 15th century inspiration combines with 21st century innovation. ... more less
