Five-course dinner, B&B and copy of Suffolk Feast cookbook from £139pp

A perfect break for foodies, the Suffolk Feast package at the 15th century Swan at Lavenham Hotel & Spa includes a gourmet five-course dinner, overnight stay with full breakfast and a copy of the Suffolk Feast cookbook signed by the hotel’s Head Chef, Justin Kett.

Packed full with delicious recipes, interesting chef interviews and a useful food lover’s guide to feast your way around the county, the cookbook includes dishes and tips from Justin for you to try back home. You will also get to sample his cooking when you dine by candlelight in the elegant AA two rosette Gallery restaurant. The high timbered ceiling, minstrels’ gallery, exposed brickwork and impressive fireplace all set the scene for a unique dining experience, while a sommelier is also on hand to offer advice on matching wines from The Swan’s extensive cellar.

Featuring the finest Suffolk ingredients, the imaginative new à la carte menu focuses on British cuisine with a choice of dishes for each of the five courses. Dependent on the season, to begin you might expect crab or fresh asparagus followed by sea trout or pigeon for the second course. A fish dish follows and then the mains; perhaps lamb or duck. Currently proving very popular is the venison served with chocolate sauce, spring greens and Hunter’s Pie.

The Suffolk Feast package is priced from £139 per person based on two sharing.
