Jim Lawrence – Spotted Out & About in Suffolk

Whether on you are holiday, local to Suffolk or visiting the Jim Lawrence showroom in Hadleigh, you may have recognised some of these characterful locations for an overnight stay or while searching for a delicious local lunch.

Fine dining requires fine lighting and whilst enjoying a meal you may well have noticed a few lights from the Jim Lawrence collection. Here are some of our favorite spots:


The Ram, Hadleigh

Listed in the Michelin Restaurant Guide 2016 and the Jim Lawrence local, customers often find themselves drawn to the relaxed dining boutique of The Ram, just a few minutes from the showroom. Offering an extensive menu, including flamboyant cocktails, you might spot a few of our Club Pendants (above) whilst enjoying one at the bar.

The Swan Hotel and Spa, Lavenham

This exquisite Tudor hotel offers a range of luxurious facilities, from hotel restaurant, spa to weddings. Based in the 15th century town of Lavenham, one of England’s best preserved medieval wool towns, it makes a worthwhile short trip from the showroom. We think our Porter Sofa Lamp looks lovely and cosy in this hotel room.

The Marquis, Layham

A recently renovated luxurious hotel and restaurant, just outside of Hadleigh. The Marquis has an extravagant menu with ingredients sourced locally and hotel suites offering beautiful views across Brett Valley.  You’ll be welcomed by our wall mounted Ship’s light in Antique Brass (left) upon arrival and if lucky enough to stay in one of their Valley suites you’ll spot our wall lights below too!

The Crown, Stoke-By-Nayland

One of Jim and Sheena’s favourites in Stoke-By-Nayland where the story of Jim Lawrence began, The Crown is the perfect venue to enjoy a relaxed meal or stay the night if you are visiting us from further away. These French doors overlooking the beautiful grounds are fitted with some beautiful bespoke handles in our traditional polished iron finish.

The Swan Inn, Monks Eleigh

A stones throw away from our showroom, the Swan Inn is the perfect country pub where you’ll receive a warm-welcome from an open fire and the Leiston Pendant in Antique Brass. The wide range of local cask ales and being dog-friendly also makes this a known favourite!

The Swan, Long Melford.

The equally as delicious sister restaurant to the Ram and two rosette restaurant. If you’ve dined at The Swan, you’ll recognise this quirky wall paper at the end of the bar and maybe even the wall and pendant lights too!
