Open letter of sincere appreciation
Dear Guests, Colleagues, Friends & Business Associates
Friday 1st September 2017 is a very important date on the calendar for us. It marks the first anniversary of the official opening of The “new” Alderton Swan.
As some of you may recall, the months leading up to the opening a year ago, were, at times, somewhat frustrating and not without their challenges, to say the least! It was therefore all the more gratifying (and a relief!) to eventually open for business and welcome our first customers, 12 months ago.
Since then, we have appreciated seeing an increasing number of guests, especially repeat guests, enjoying what we hope is a superior food & beverage experience in the beautiful Deben Peninsula. Not only that, but we’ve also been pleasantly surprised at the support our events have received, including our now well-known and popular fortnightly Tapas Thursday, our music & song sessions and the end of month quiz nights.
As owners, we’re naturally very proud of what has been achieved so far and whilst the winter months were, as expected, relatively quiet, we have been greatly impressed by the significant increase in guests visiting us since Easter. With summer about to become all but a distant memory, our thoughts now turn to autumn.
Like any business, it is important we do not stand still; we’re already looking at further investments in the premises during the next year, which we hope will encourage more visitors to the area to see what it has to offer; a fresh new menu will be introduced soon and our events, both regular and one-off, will continue. Full details can be found on our website or on Facebook or Twitter.
All that remains is for us to say a huge thank you to all guests, both local and those from further afield, who have supported The Alderton Swan during the past year. We know you have a large number establishments in the local area to choose from, but we do hope your Alderton Swan experience was positive and above all, most enjoyable and relaxing. Your custom is truly appreciated and we hope to welcome you again in the not too distant future.
To our dear colleagues, or members of “Team Swan” as they are affectionately known, none of what has been have achieved so far, would have been possible without your dedication and hard work. Our heartfelt thanks go to you all. We look forward very much to working with you during the months ahead and taking The Alderton Swan to a new and exciting stage in its development.
And to everyone else who has supported The Alderton Swan, either as a supplier or simply as a friend, we also extend our grateful thanks to you all. We trust that you will take the opportunity to drop in an visit us again soon, perhaps as early this coming Friday 1st September!
With best wishes,
