Welcome to The Gallery Restaurant

Arguably one of The Swan's finest features, The Gallery Restaurant offers a magnificent spot in the centre of our 15th-century home, with a new unique culinary experience to help you enjoy more of Suffolk's best produce.

Oak beams drape the room, chandelier lighting sets the mood, and our resident pianist, Peter Durrent, can be heard every Sunday lunchtime, filling the room with a beautifully soft melody. The Gallery Restaurant is a hive of activity all day long, 7 days a week, serving breakfast for all of our hotel guests first thing, followed by a flow of classic lunch dishes and Afternoon Tea's, and finishing with dinner service in the evening.

Children aged 8 and over are welcome to dine in The Gallery restaurant.
