A charming hotel that has history spanning back to the 16th century, The Swan Hotel features a wonderful Bar and Lounge area that serves plenty of home favourites.
The Swan Hotel was built shortly after Henry VIII’s death by Robert Cook, a pardoned rebel who took part in Kett’s rebellion. Seemingly built to last, The Swan Hotel still retains plenty of its original architecture, including two wings and the courtyard, even after extensive renovations. Even from the outside guests can feel the rich history of the establishment, with its swinging sign hanging above a front of mellow bricks and intricate wrought iron.
Within The Swan Hotel guests can find the Bar and Lounge, a more informal setting to relax and enjoy a bite than its restaurant counterpart. Open in the afternoon and the evening, diners are advised to book early to ensure they can arrive in good time.
On Saturday mornings and throughout the weekday afternoons the Swan Breakfast is served, available in regular or ‘mega’ size, it contains all the beloved aspects of a classic English fry up, such as bacon, sausages, eggs, fried bread and beans.
During the evening, or if that afternoon lunch requires something particularly delicious, there are several tried and tested British favourites like the beloved scampi, the hearty beer battered cod and the tasty Suffolk ham and eggs, all of which come with plenty of peas and chips. Also available is The Swan Hotel’s Deluxe Burger, stacked with bacon, cheese and BBQ sauce.
Diners looking for something in the neutral ground between breakfast and lunch options will adore the specially made omelettes, which come with a choice of three fillings of either cheese, tomato, ham, mushrooms, onions or pepper, and are served with a heap of chips and fresh salad garnish.
