We were staying in the village and came to the pub for a meal. It was the night of the first game of the rugby and the bar was full. I had phoned the pub to tell them of my dietary needs and the landlord was great about it. We had a lovely meal, and really enjoyed the evening with... More

We have just had a great meal at a fantastic price on our final night in Suffolk. The atmosphere was very relaxed with lots of jokes with the locals. Definately worth a visit. ☺ Dont believe the reviews on Google.

Ray and Pam greet their guests like old friends and returning customers even if you've never met them before. Ray describes himself as did one of his Trip Advisor reviewers--"crusty, but very humorous"--and I would ditto that remark. They are lovely people and a remarkable team--greeting, cooking and serving. Their rooms are sparkling clean, well-maintained, and comfortable, Their pub food... More

Having eaten here fairly regularly I can recommend this Suffolk village pub. The food is invariably good, largely home made and cooked on the premises. The portions are a good size. The menu is not large, but this can be an advantage as the kitchen is not overstretched trying to do too many different things. The owners are friendly and... More

We are local people and have called in on a couple of occasions, once it was shut (Strange for a Sunday) the second was at 1:45pm on a Saturday only to be told as we walked in "Sorry my darlings we're closing". The one local at the bar told us as we walked out he was closing as he was... More

I don't normally write reviews but our stay here merits the effort. Friendly, comfortable and excellent value. If you seek a quiet retreat this is the place to go and within striking distance of many attractions, particularly National Trust. Highly recommended.

Don't be put off by the exterior. You get used to the pink paint in Suffolk. We found the owners, Pam and Ray, very friendly and helpful. The bedroom (separate to the inn) was wonderfully decorated and had a good shower. The food, especially breakfast, was plentiful and excellently cooked. We stayed 4 nights and were well accommodated. Strangely, most... More
