Perfect for a short break if you are into the outdoors. Small, friendly inn. Good food, beer and four comfortable rooms. We used it as a base for a bird spotting weekend. Close to Orford quay and the boats for Orford Ness and Havergate islandt

Booked the garden room which was lovely but right next to the kitchen so it was rather hot and noisy. Our bath was free standing but wobbly and our cold tap did not work at all to start with but luckily my OH had his leatherman so we sorted it. Nice toiletries and comfy bed, little courtyard area too leading... More

Stayed here recently for one night. Room superb. Food very good. Fantastic location. The one fault (a big one), was on arrival our bathroom taps had very low water pressure and then by 6pm no water at all. Told staff who said they'd look into it. Didnt bother to come and tell us what was happening. On further enquiry was... More

We stayed here for one night, the Ore room was spacious with a very delightful en suite!!! The room was very clean, the view from the room over the fields was lovely. The garden area had plenty of seating and was well kept. But most of all the food was fantastic, we ate lunch and a evening meal, both were... More

Spent Saturday night at this lovely pub. The Orchard room was spotlessly clean and the bed really comfortable. The evening meal was excellent, washed down, of course, by fine Adnams ales! Following a great night's sleep we came down to a wonderful breakfast which set us up for the day. Fantastic service throughout!

We stayed here for one weekday night while on a walking holiday. The room was comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. We overlooked the road but had no problems sleeping. The breakfast was stunning, we had smoked salmon with scrambled eggs which was delicious. Our supper the night before was less enjoyable but overall we enjoyed our stay.

Dined with friends, Sunday evening at the end of May. Food choice was excellent and the quality was very good. Lovely pub in an outstanding area of suffolk. Lots of food choice, including fish, all cooked to a very high standard. Most certainly the place to dine in Orford!
