Lavenham - The Swan Hotel; The Angel; The Cock Horse Inn 

Three more good pubs and restaurants, in the heart of Lavenham. They are in great locations and serve excellent food. The Swan also has the famous Airmen’s Bar which remains largely as it was in the 1940s when it was popular with the American airmen stationed in the area during the war. The Cock Horse Inn was recently awarded ‘The Best Pub and Restaurant in Suffolk’
