Booked for Father's Day and found the service courteous and efficient. We were nearly an hour late for our booking but was still met with a smile and 'not a problem' from the staff. Food was excellent as was the service. Pricing was good. Lovely outside patio area too. Do book as was busy to ensure you are not disappointed.... More

Having spent a good couple of hours driving around the Suffolk/Essex border on the hunt for a venue to cater for 11 for a 70th birthday celebration, I'm so happy I booked a table at The Angel. All pre-meal email communication was prompt and reassuring. It seemed like staff would do anything they could to help make our celebration go... More

We booked a superior room (3) and were not disappointed. Good size and well furnished with a huge bathroom (shower over). Nice toiletries and bath sheets. The only surprising thing was how busy the country road was late at night which meant some noise. Sure that rooms at the back would not be affected as much. Met by Rees who... More

Top quality dining experience with friendly staff, well judged menu and old school service. Puddings are particularly good and better yet all the people that wear man made fibers are all up at the Crown. Grown up dining.

A lovely old inn in rural Suffolk ideal for a short break away from it all. Wooden beams and low ceilings abound, as do the misshapen walls. The original well is still in evidence in the room used for breakfast. The food was lovely, there was plenty of it and we came home absolutely bloated!

Very enjoyable meal. Would improve presentation as to did not stand up to rosette standards, however imaginative pub menu with good ingredients. Perhaps chef could use salt with pasta? Maybe some chutney for slightly overdone duck parfait, and husband asked for lamb pink, not raw... Also scallops were bit on underdone side. Nevertheless would recommend and come back. Lovely gravadlax... More

We stayed one night here and in general were very pleased. The staircase was awkward but we managed that,but the room ceiling was low and for us who like a cool room always too hot even with the window open to the traffic. The dinner was good but not quite 5 star whilst the service and breakfast certainly were. The... More

I very much enjoyed lunch with a friend at this friendly pub. The smiling and efficient welcome continued with smiling and efficient service throughout. The menu offered an interesting choice at reasonable prices. We both opted for dishes from the set menu, staggeringly good value at £14.95 for two courses, £17.95 for three. Everything we chose was delicious, well presented,... More

We had a special family lunch on Sunday 10 May and everything was perfect. The food was well cooked, the service efficient and staff pleasant and the dining room with the large chandelier and well was just a bit different a setting! The other reviews were right. The price was very reasonable for the quality of the meal. Would definitely... More
