Long Melford Swan Long Melford, Suffolk, CO10 9JQ

David Hancock’s full review is coming soon…

Lorna Pissaro’s thriving bar-cum-restaurant with rooms is located in the heart of pretty Long Melford, noted for its antique shops, and makes a fabulous base for exploring Lavenham, the Stour Valley and Constable Country. Step inside to find a relaxing and informal bar (log fire, simple furnishings, bold wallpaper), a smart rear dining area and a great drinks list offering Greene King beer on tap, decent wines and a raft of boutique gins and cocktails. Food is a big draw – modern imaginative dishes (2 AA Rosettes) prepared from Suffolk ingredients, so tuck into the likes of Muntjac terrine with Cumberland sauce, wild bass with prawn bisque, and banana soufflé. A breakfast/brunch menu, afternoon tea, Sunday lunch, a chef’s table and tasting menu (6-8 people; booking advised) in the pantry, and a fabulous deli (Duck Deli) just down the road completes the pleasing foodie picture. Best to stay over I’d say – the seven individually decorated boutique-style rooms and split between the Swan and grand Melford House next doors. Expect bold wallpapers, rich fabrics, Hypnos beds, individual furnishings and contemporary tiled bathrooms, some with roll-top tubs, and a host of cossetting detail touches to make you smile.
