Set in the heart of rural Suffolk in the village of Lawshall the Swan Inn is everything that a country pub should be. A beautiful 18th century thatched building crammed full of period features and lovingly restored in 2013. On the menu you will find all the traditional classics with a few extra culinary delights. A large garden encourages children to play. A real ale festival is held in May.

There are a number of coins nailed to the underside of the beams in the pub; it was a local custom during the Great War for departing soldiers to nail one up, to be retrieved when they returned. Sadly, many didn't.
