Description

Set in the heart of the beautiful Suffolk medieval village of Lavenham, the stunning 15th century Swan at Lavenham is steeped in centuries of history. With its half-timbered picture perfect exterior, luxurious surroundings, oak beamed interiors, open fires and cosy nooks, the hotel brings together a deep sense of history and occasion with a mix of classic and contemporary styling.

The 45 individual bedrooms and suites have all the little luxuries you would expect from a four red star hotel; each room slightly different to the next. Guests can choose from a range of dining options to suit all moods and palates from simple, informal eating in the contemporary style Brasserie to sumptuous fine dining in the AA two rosette Gallery Restaurant. Tempting dishes are created by Head Chef Justin Kett, whilst Sommeliers are on hand to offer advice and suggest matching wines from the wine cellar. The Swan has a long-established reputation for its traditional afternoon teas with which it has enticed many a generation over the years. Now served in the Gallery Restaurant, the options include sweet or savoury Traditional Afternoon Tea, together with High Tea and you could of course include a glass of champagne.

The relaxed Airmen’s Bar is full of Second World War memorabilia and signatures from the airmen who were stationed at nearby RAF Lavenham (US Station 137), making it an inspiring setting to sit in front of the fire after a day out on cooler days. In warmer times you can also enjoy lunch, tea or cocktails in the sheltered gardens and hidden courtyard.
