Swan Hotel

High Street, Market Place, SOUTHWOLD, IP18 6EG

2 rosettes

Just in front of the Sole Bay brewery, the epicentre of the Adnams' empire's Southwold operations, is the Swan - a handsome bay-fronted hotel whose flagship restaurant has well-established supply lines to prime local materials, deployed in confident, full-flavoured cooking. Pumpkin and walnut tart is matched with a poached duck egg and grain mustard sabayon, or you might start with that time-honoured duo of seared scallops and home-made black pudding, partnered with celeriac purée, apple and walnuts. Main course brings a big-hearted dish of venison loin with herb mash, root vegetables and fig purée, sauced with port and orange. For pudding, there's big flavour in a fig and almond sponge.
