We have been here many times over the years and would describe it as, by far the best food in Suffolk! The service is second to none! The food is always cooked to perfection, and they change the menu to suit the season! I would highly recommend it to everyone.

An evening out with friends at a restaurant in our local village ..food and service of the highest standards. Attentive and friendly staff and beautiful surroundings. Pricing and choice on the menu very competitive and contemporary but with a nice cosy setting.

Although very quiet the few times we have been here the service and standard of cuisine is top drawer. Pity you have to drive as it's a little out of the way. If you cold replicate this restaurant in town they would be quids in.

I have been here many many times over the years and this time it was for my special Birthday celebration. All age groups were catered for and a lovely time was had by one and all on a Sunday at lunchtime.
