Welcome to the Swan Inn, Monks Eleigh

A hidden gem tucked away in the quaint village of Monks Eleigh, The Swan is a beautiful thatched pub serving quality food in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. With its roots firmly established as a country pub, we will ensure that we always offer a great selection of regional cask ales coupled with quality “new world” wines.


Acquired by family-owned pub group Exclusive Inns in March 2014, The Swan has undergone a sympathetic refurbishment programme transforming it into a modern village pub that sits at the heart of the village. You can expect a relaxing bar area with an authentic country pub feel and a warm and welcoming restaurant area that overlooks the village green.


Join us for food and on the menu you will find a delectable selection of classic dishes served with a modern edge. Fresh locally sourced ingredients are our focus and we aim to deliver only the finest quality food in a relaxed and friendly setting. The Swan is open every day for lunch and dinner and may be hired exclusively for your special occasion.
