We have two very special private dining rooms, The Reading Room and the Juniper Room.

Private dining starts from £40 per person. Menus and drinks lists are personalised to your needs and occasion.

The Swan is licensed for civil ceremonies.

If you have an enquiry please email our Events Manager 


The Reading Room is on the first floor with views over Southwold’s Marketplace and out to sea. As its name suggests, this lovely room is flooded with natural light and features bookcases and some soft seating.  It’s the perfect room for informal gatherings and small wedding ceremonies, for 50 people (theatre style) or 40 people on round tables.


The Juniper Room is just off the Still Room which is the hotel’s main restaurant. With an ante-room containing wine cabinets, it’s the ideal location for pre-dinner drinks and wine tastings. The Juniper room is classically dressed with a long dining table which seats up to 14. Perfect for intimate dinners and small parties.

Whatever your occasion, we’ll tailor a menu and drinks list to you, creating something personal and wonderfully memorable.
