Went for Sunday lunch on 7 December 2014. Nice surroundings and friendly staff. All four in our party ordered the beef as a main. Mine arrived smothered in gravy, which normally I don't mind, as I love it. But THIS gravy was vile. Tasted burnt and bitter. I had to scrape it off the meal in order to eat it.... More

We were a group of 6 couples booked for a Sunday dine and stay. All of us are seasoned travellers and have eaten/stayed in some top places. All were full of praise for this beautiful country inn/restaurant. The staff were friendly, efficient and helpful beyond belief - they worked a miracle to resolve many difficulties so that the males in... More

We stayed here for two nights and I feel compelled to write a review, which I rarely do. The staff were incredibly attentive- we were upgraded free of charge because of a party one of the nights, the rooms were fantastic,all the staff working here were friendly and polite. All in all, I couldn't have been happier with our experience... More

We have just had a delightful luncheon here! Everything we had asked for was beautifully executed, no fussy excesses or over attention ....good discreet but super service! Thank you to Alice for the arrangements, to Alberto and his team for five hours of keeping us served with lovely meals and wines and obviously to chef and her team! We loved... More

Had dinner in a large group here. The food was incredible! Staff were so very helpful, and were attentive without being overbearing. The food is very well presented and full of flavour. We found that all tastes in our group were well catered for. The pub itself is in a beautiful village. We cannot recommend it enough, and will definitely... More

We stayed here as we were attending a wedding at Priory Hall. The hotel was a fine choice and we stayed 2 nights, the room was fine and everything worked... not much more to add if you are in the area and need somewhere reasonable to stay you wont be disappointed.

We was very sceptical about returning here when we heard that the head chef had changed, although we are very glad to confirm the food was fantastic. All our food came out cooked to perfection with perfect timing between courses. All food was presented wonderfully although the desserts stood out above the other courses. For basic desserts such a brûlée... More

This pub mixes modern food and ambience with old-style sevice and quality food and drink. It is a pub with atmosphere enough for an afternoon with friends or a quieter top-quality dinner. I have been there many times. The food prices are high in the restaurant, especially for Suffolk, but it is worth it. You get what you pay for;... More

Stayed for a Saturday evening on 30-Aug-14. It is the epitome of a Gastro Pub. A beautifully upgraded coaching inn which offers an excellent dinner followed by a night in comfortable well appointed bedroom. On the evening we stayed there was a noisy party in the bar, but we were shown to a quieter corner just inside the restaurant for... More
