We are Stuart Inns - One Big Family Business
The Long Melford Swan is part of the Stuart Inns Group which is owned and managed by siblings Iain Macmillan and Lorna Pissarro.
Together with their father Andrew, they have brought together their passion for food and design to create something very
Their vision was to open a welcoming bar and restaurant with an appealing menu which is crafted and prepared with culinary
passion using the best seasonal ingredients. The luxurious rooms each have their own look and feel, where, after
a fabulous meal, guests can enjoy a restful night and a mouth-watering award winning breakfast the following morning.
"When we took on the Swan in 2011, we knew what we wanted to
create, but the tiny kitchen meant we were a little limited. Over the
last 7 years we have renovated the whole building, including a new
state-of-the-art kitchen giving us the space and equipment to deliver
our high quality menu."
"I have loved designing the look and feel of both the restaurant
and the bedrooms. I wanted to create an atmosphere that is welcoming and
stylish. The restaurant has different areas to suit our customers which
include a lively front bar, a relaxing garden room and a cosy
restaurant. We also have a private dining room and chef's table."
Listed in the Michelin Guide, an array of constantly changing menus are available
in this 2 AA rosette restaurant. All dishes are prepared by a team of talented chefs using only the finest seasonal produce,
