Welcome to the Swan


Sitting in a pretty village on the northern outskirts of Ipswich, lies the Swan at Westerfield. The newest member of the Deben Inns family, the Swan was acquired in 2013 and has since built a reputation for providing excellent and imaginative food, in addition to a wide-ranging selection of drinks.  

The large beer garden set in the peaceful surroundings of Westerfield village, offers a great option for al fresco dining, with the bright and airy interior of the pub adding to a welcoming feel. Parking is plentiful, with many walks around the local area to enjoy before or after your meal; families and dogs are most welcome.

The inventive menu at the Swan is sure to catch your eye. The Chefs are left without restraint and encouraged to be as creative as they choose, making for some wonderful dishes that are of course run alongside the perfectly crafted pub favourites. A special mention to the Swan’s ever-growing selection of gins; if you’re a gin lover, this is a treat.

As the Swan at Westerfield’s reputation continues to grow, it has become the ideal spot for those looking for a great out-of-town dining experience, with the friendly staff sure to make your visit a memorable one.

“Good service, good food.”

We visit the swan quite regularly as we are always happy with both the food and the service. We like to sit outside in the summer as we can bring our dog along. In winter we like to sit in the top room on the comfy chairs, which we are usually able to get if we ask in advance. The steaks and the fish and chips are always amazing, We always find the service is friendly and welcoming which goes a long way in our opinion.

“Excellent Food and service”

We have visited this place many times and it never fails to impress, the service is good, staff friendly and food presented in an excellent way. A good place to stop for lunch and evening meal. In addition the beer is beautifully kept

Refill Suffolk was launched in June 2018 by local plastic awareness campaigner and founder of rubbishwalks.co.uk Jason Alexander. Teaming up with Anglian Water, The Greenprint Forum, BBC Radio Suffolk, Transition Woodbridge and a growing number of other groups and individuals across the county Refill Suffolk hopes to raise awareness about our overuse of single use plastics and the impact this has on our local communities and countryside.

Small changes can make a massive difference. One of the easiest things we can do is stop using single use water bottles and use reusable bottles instead. The more convenient we can make this the better hence the effort to provide a network of free tap water refill stations across the county.

All of our inns are registered refill stations and are open from 9am everyday. Pop in and we will refill your water bottle for free.
