Went to this old fashioned pub with my partner for a dinner on Friday night as just moved into the area. It's a small traditional pub, ok for a little drink. It's very busy and noisy. All the tables were reserved so we ended up sitting near the bar on a low table which isn't ideal for eating. My partner... More

Stopped here a month or two ago, and it is a lovely place to stay, but walls are really thin and you can hear things from surrounding rooms, especially at 6am when the person in the next room blasts there TV which is bolted to the wall the other side of my bed headboard. Otherwise a great stay.

We stayed here for one night in May 2015. Our en suite double (room 4) was quite small and a little crowded with furniture but very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The accommodation is in a separate building to the pub so nice and quiet, a little cold & tired in the corridors, but ultra cosy and warm... More

A group of us visited for an evening meal, on a dreary drizzly evening. The welcoming of the log fire was very appreciated, and the people behind the bar very friendly. The food was lovely and plenty of it. I loved the decor, and the outside play area for the children looked great fun. There was lots of outdoor seating,... More

I visited The Sorrel Horse for lunch with a friend inbetween Xmas and New Year. We had no trouble getting a table, and I had homemade Cottage Pie, and my friend had homemade Steak and Ale Pudding - both meals were stunning, good quality, generous portion sizes, and my friend asked for extra gravy which was provided with no problem....

Having been satisfied with our first visit to the Sorrel Horse Inn we had no hesitation in making a repeat booking when returning to the area. We were not disappointed, the room was clean and spacious and opened on to the car park so easy access for the dogs. The staff were welcoming and helpful, the beers and food wholesome... More

We had not visited Suffolk for 18 months, so when we arrived this was one of the first placed we went to. As we walked in, the barman recognised us, and directed us to where we could find an empty table. This was about 7 p.m. and the place was full, Sunday lunch was still being ordered. The main menu...
