The Swan Hotel is one of England's most iconic and striking hotels which dates back to the 15th Century in the beautiful medieval village of Lavenham. The epitome of quaint Olde English charm but sensitively modernised throughout in its rooms, dining rooms and now a luxurious spa. A true statement setting in Suffolk.

The Brasserie overlooks the gardens and is a perfect spot for enjoying a long and relaxing lunch or catching up with friends over a chilled glass of wine. Chelsea-based interior designer Todhunter Earle blended the Swan's historic medieval features such as original stone floors, large fireplaces and vibrant stained glass windows with stylish oak furnishings and a calming colour palette to create a bright and modern dining space, secluded by screens crafted specially for the Swan by local Suffolk metalworker.

The menu includes traditional British favourites and seasonal lunchtime salads, sandwiches and specials, as well as having cutting-edge Healthy and Nutritious options available.

For fine dining please see sister restaurant The Gallery at The Swan at Lavenham.
