After a 4 mile walk around the Stowlangtoft Estate we, a party of 13, enjoyed a lovely Sunday Lunch at the Dark Horse which is situated in the grounds of the estate - and takes some finding! Despite being a large party we were 'dealt with' in a very friendly and efficient manner, right from the drinks in the unusual... More

Excellent restaurant located in the middle of lovely quiet countryside where you able to have a walk around before settling in for a good lunch or dinner, helpful and friendly staff, it's converted stables with small enjoyable bar and a reception/seating area with a very homely feel, restaurant itself has lots of natural light looking out onto a large courtyard...

The restaurant had a good atmosphere ,friendly staff and superb food, well presented. Our friends who were visiting over the weekend were very impressed with the quality of the food and also the gluten free options available. We will certainly return and recommend this restaurant to others.

The waitress was lovely and charming, the food, average, very average, so much so that I will not return. Why oh why is it so difficult to deliver good food at a reasonable price!

I have a policy for reading reviews on Tripadvisor. I always look at the 'terribles' and try to spot a common thread running through them, single complaints don't mean too much but if the same thing keeps rearing its ugly head then maybe there's an issue. One problem with this site is that it doesn't 'draw a line in the... More

Friends we were visiting thought we might like this restaurant. They were right. But bear in mind it was a glorious summer evening when the Suffolk countryside was at its very best.

We had a lovely meal here on a beautiful hot July eve. Service excellent and so was the food. Had 2 courses plus wine, coffee and nightcap and bill was reasonable for special eve. The owners were very hospitable. The room was a little echoie perhaps could have done with some background music, but will definitely go back.
