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

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.
