Rustic, earthy food, world class beers and gorgeous wines


Beer festivals - We’re big fans of the American craft beer scene at the Swan; and we’ve managed to get import some of our favourites. From California to New Hampshire via Colorado we’ll be tapping them from Wednesday August 12th onwards. Click here to see which beers we'll have on tap.

Our sister pub The Anchor in Walberswick is also hosting a beer festival on the 8th and 9th of August. A fabulous array of both locally produced ales and globe trotting craft beer will be accompanied by Sophie's street food and barbecue, including Blythburgh pork and West Mersea oysters. Beer list here and here.

Parties at The Swan - we are hosting more and more private lunches and suppers in our rear dining room. This lovely historic beamed snug makes a great place to host friends and family for up to 30 people. So if you would like more details, please do contact Jane on 01206 321244 or email
