Meet The Chef

Our menus are the inspiration of our Head Chef Justin Kett who turns his passion for showcasing the very best Suffolk ingredients into outstanding British food. Since taking the helm of The Swan Hotel in 2011, Justin has used his creativity and experience working in Michelin-starred kitchens to provide guests with an array of dining options to suit every mood and palate. From grand dining in our 2 AA Rosette Gallery restaurant to the contemporary and raw plates in our Brasserie, Justin’s food nods to the exciting gastronomy that is shaping the British culinary landscape today. He is also enthusiastic about sourcing local suppliers for his dishes wherever possible and you’ll find much of the meat on our menus comes direct from the butchers across the road.

When he’s not in the kitchens, you’ll find Justin roaming the Suffolk countryside in search of inspiration for his next seasonal dish.
