Family-owned pub company Stuart Inns has marked its fifth anniversary at the Long Melford Swan by unveiling expansion plans.
The changes, all due to be completed by Christmas, include a new dining room overlooking the existing terrace and a dining area close to the kitchen including a special “chef’s table” where chefs will introduce dishes as they are served.
In addition, three new bedrooms are being added to meet demand for accommodation, the bar area is being redesigned and a deli is being added to the business, selling products from the same suppliers used by the kitchen team.
Stuart Inns is run by the Macmillan family, including Andrew Macmillan, his daughter, Lorna Pissarro, and sons, Oliver and Iain Macmillan.
It now runs three pubs, the Long Melford Swan (which it took on in 2011), the Hadleigh Ram (2013) and the Lavenham Greyhound (2014), all as tenants of Greene King.
Lorna Pissarro, marketing manager, said: “The last five years have been tremendously hard work for everyone at Stuart Inns since we opened the doors of the Long Melford Swan, but also fantastically enjoyable.
“The venue has established itself as a boutique and gastro place to visit, but we want to keep on taking the business forward by making it bigger and better and enhance our customer experience.
