Whilst case numbers are high, we've decided to be "sensible" about indoor service.

If you are here for the beer garden, you can order at the bar. Indoor tables remain well spaced and are table service only.

Full booking information here.


Our menu changes frequently as we use local seasonal produce. We try to keep the website copy up to date but availability of some dishes may change day to day.

On busy days, we occasionally need to stop offering bar food to walk in customers for a short period to allow the kitchen to catch up with orders.

On The Water

Visiting us by Water & Boat Launching

You can visit us by canoe, kayak etc. Please 'park' your boat in the garden so the decking areas remain clear.

Boat launching is available from 10am. Please come and see us before launching any craft.
There is a £10 charge for a pass to launch up to 2 craft. This can be redeemed for full value on purchases at the bar on the date issued.

Paddle Boarding

During the summer, paddle boards can be hired at the Henny Swan. For more details & booking information contact thepaddlecompany.co.uk.

Boat Trips

The River Stour Trust run boat trips to us from Sudbury. More details: River Stour Trust

Rowing Boat Hire

Sadly, we are not operating the rowing boats this summer. With the upheaval caused by social distancing requirements and the industry wide staff shortages we've had to concentrate more on the pub this year.

All things being well, we hope to be operating the boats again next spring.
