The Swan Hotel in Southwold has been awarded with the highest accreditation by the ‘Eat Out, Eat Well’ campaign run by Suffolk County Council and Public Health. The award recognises the hotel’s commitment to offering guests healthier menu options and promoting the ethos that eating out and a healthy lifestyle can be enjoyed together.
The award was presented by Cllr Mary Rudd, Waveney District Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Health and Safety and Paul Goldsmith, Food & Safety Officer with East Suffolk Councils, to Rory Whelan, Executive Chef and Craig Ripley, General Manager of the Swan Hotel, Southwold.
The Swan offers guests two distinct dining options; the warm and cosy Tap Room featuring a menu of upscale pub dishes served with the full range of Adnams beers, wines and spirits. The Still Room is The Swan’s elegant dining option, featuring the iconic Copper Bar where our team of mixologists blend cocktails using Adnams spirits. The Still Room offers a menu inspired by the East Anglian coast and country, using gastronomic cooking techniques to create exciting dishes full of flavour.
Executive Chef, Rory Whelan, comments: “Choice is paramount for those choosing to eat out, and it’s important for us to offer a flexible approach with regards to guests’ wellbeing at the Swan. ‘Eat Out, Eat Well’ is a campaign that I believe in and I think guests would opt to dine out more often, if they knew that a restaurant can help them with flexible and healthier menu choices”
The Swan Hotel team are also delighted to have been awarded a 5 Food Hygiene rating from Waveney District Council.
The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) helps customers make an informed choice about where to eat by highlighting restaurants, pubs and cafés with excellent food hygiene. Food businesses can display their black and green FHRS sticker advertising their current food safety rating, which gives customers an immediate insight into the kitchen and shows how seriously the business takes food hygiene.
Customers are encouraged to check food hygiene ratings when choosing where to eat by looking for the FHRS sticker before ordering food. The ratings of over 440,000 food businesses can also be checked online.
