Since opening the first of our three venues, the Long Melford Swan...


One thing we knew before anything else is that talented chefs require only the best ingredients from they can prepare some of the finest food found outside of London. Fortunately, two of the Stuart Inns directors are fully trained chefs and have many years experience creating menus with highly acclaimed dishes.

We therefore place a great emphasis on sourcing only the best ingredients, from suppliers who have built their reputation on only supplying the best produce, time after time, year after year. So, we feel it is only right we should showcase them in order to inform current and potential customers of the provenance of the raw ingredients we use daily.
