Eating out locally

Nice pub on the outskirts of Newmarket, the Suffolk racing town. Food is excellent and the huge choice is just amazing.

What can I say yet another superb meal, great hosts/staff, I think the 99.9% of reviews would agree! Not sure I agree with the comment about being "rushed out of the door" I can honestly say hand on heart we have never felt rushed.. As for far to much veg how can you have to much? If you don't want... More

We went after the racing on the Sunday evening, the starters arrived within 5 mins after sitting down, and within 10 mins the main course came, all far too quick, although the food was average there were far far too much vegetables, would have enjoyed it better if they took there time and allowed you too relax during the meal,...

Worth a taxi ride from Newmarket Town, about £10 each way. Very friendly staff, with a great knowledge of the food and also the surrounding area. The owner,made himself known and obviously takes a hands on approach to his business and it shows. The staff were happy to serve us at our pace, as we were not in a rush... More

we had the most amazing night as we have had many times before. My peppered fillet steak absolutely melted in the mouth, and my husbands steak was first class. We've been many times before, and will be going many years to come. Thanks Tony,Gina and staff for another night to remember

Picked this pub/restaurant based on reviews for area and they were not wrong. Food was very good, great choice on the menu, normally with so much choice there is a compromise on the quality but this was not the case. The brie parcels as a starter were excellent and a different slant on a common starter. The Halibut steak was... More
