The Swan Inn, Barnby, Suffolk, has been named Seafood Pub of the Year at the Seafood Awards 2009.

Run by industry body Seafish, the pub award is made in association with The Publican.

The Swan Inn and its food operation, the Fisherman's Cove restaurant, has built up a strong repuation among seafood enthusiasts across East Anglia and beyond.

The pub is close to the port of Lowestoft, and owners Donny and Michael Cole have been in the fish industry for more than 50 years, with the family's fish merchant business now in its fourth generation.

The judges praised the pub's pride in "selecting and preparing only the finest ingredients to create imaginative and fine tasting meals", adding that the Swan's "expertise is unequalled".

The award was presented by John Porter, Food Editor of The Publican​, at a ceremony at the Marriott, Grosvenor Square, in London.

The Navy Inn, Penzance, Cornwall, was highly commended. In a strongly contested category, other finalists were the Grapes, Limehouse, London, and the Plockton Hotel, Plockton, Ross-shire, Scotland.

  • Brakes Cod, Smoked Haddock & Leek en Papillote won the Best New Seafood Products Award on the night, while M&J Seafood was named winner of the Sustainable Future Award .
