Swan Inn Monks Eleigh

The Street, Monks Eleigh, Suffolk, IP7 7AU
Find this thatched pub/restaurant in this picturesque Tudor village in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. Inside you’ll find exposed beams, bare boards and tables.

Chef/proprietor Nigel Ramsbottom sources nearly all his produce locally – and fish is particular strong point. Dishes are displayed on a blackboard.

Starters include the likes of ‘Crispy Peking Duck Salad with Hoi Sin Sauce’; ‘Roast Red Pepper filled with Goats’ Cheese and Pesto on a Garlic Bruschetta’ and ‘Home-Cured Gravadlax with a Dill and Mustard Mayonnaise’.

While ‘Braised Lamb Knuckle with a Puy Lentil Sauce on Mash with Buttered Broad Beans’; ‘Whole Roast Sea Bass with Ginger and Coriander Butter with Mixed Leaves and New Potatoes’ and ‘Char-Grilled Fillet Steak, on Buttered Spinach, Whole Grain Mustard Sauce, with Hand-Cut Chips’ set the style for mains.

If you still have room, you might be tempted by ‘Pannacotta with Red Fruits and Grappa’; ‘Iced Brandy Mousse’ or their ‘Glazed Lemon Tart’.
