The Swan Still Room


This elegant restaurant takes its name from our craft distillery, and you’ll find that the Copper House Distillery has influenced the design with features such as the stunning copper-topped bar showcasing our award-winning spirits. The Still Room has an air of grandeur and calm.


With oak floors and artefacts galore, the Tap Room is steeped in Adnams heritage and is a great place for a light bite or a long lunch. It’s a contemporary pub with a stylish showcase of Adnams beers.

Afternoon tea in the Still Room - the Swan Southwold
