Long Melford Swan Expansion

Posted 15 Sep 2016

Stuart Inns celerates 5 years


Stuart Inns has marked the fifth anniversary of the Long Melford Swan by unveiling plans to expand the restaurant. The hugely popular Long Melford Swan opened in 2011 as Stuart Inns’ first venture with the company also operating the Hadleigh Ram and Lavenham Greyhound.


The restaurant with rooms is run by the Macmillan family, Andrew Macmillan, daughter Lorna Pissarro and sons Oliver and Iain Macmillan.


Among the highlights of the planned changes, scheduled to be completed before Christmas, are a brand new garden dining room overlooking the existing popular dining terrace and topped off with a grass roof, while the bar area is being redesigned for a more casual feel.

Demand for more accommodation means the Long Melford Swan will add four brand new boutique bedrooms to its existing number.

Further innovations will see an exciting new deli to enable customers to buy products from the same suppliers used by the Long Melford Swan team.

As well as this the venue will open a new chef’s pantry including a special chef’s table, a new dining experience positioned deliberately close to the kitchens so that the chefs can introduce the dishes as they are served.

Marketing Director for Stuart Inns, Lorna Pissarro said: “The last five years have been tremendously hard work for everyone at Stuart Inns since we opened the doors of the Long Melford Swan, but also fantastically enjoyable.

“The venue has established itself as a boutique and gastro place to visit, but we want to keep on taking the business forward by making it bigger and better and enhance our customer experience.

“We are sure our guests will like some of the new ideas we have and be keen to try out the new dining areas and to entice them further we will have a range of special offers once the redevelopment is complete.”
