Imagine a pub that does not need to try as its location keeps on bringing the punters in. Welcome to the Butt and Oyster. Sometimes it is great to pop in here for a quick beer. It can be a great place to chat with locals, but (and I have a big butt) you have to accept that the staff... More

6 of us went on a cold January day. Pub car park was full but there's a pay and display a short walk away. Staff were welcoming and the pub has a relaxed atmosphere and allows well behaved dogs. We didn't want a big lunch - friends had sandwiches which were good and I had Deben mussels in cocunut milk... More

We have been back three or four times recently and the new menu is good and caters for most. The pulled pork is very good and the portion quite generous. The service has improved too.

Please stay away. I like this pub so much I prefer it to myself. The river, the timeless atmosphere, the beer, the food. One of the most iconic pubs I know.

Atmosphere terrific and combines olde worlds with chic and classy. Log fires in bars, fresh scrubbed tables in dining area. Very good choice of food with an emphasis to... More

We booked a table for 4 on Sunday 4th January. We arrived a little early and had placed our order by 12.30. By 1.30 we still had not received either our meals or an explanation for the delay. Two tables had come eaten and gone before we got our dinner. When we asked when we could expect our food we... More

Visited many times before, usually with guests and never had a bad meal. Absolutely delicious food and lots of choice, including interesting variety of vegetarian options. Fish is a favourite choice of ours wherever we go and this pub has some of the most delicious anywhere in Suffolk. It has a buzzy atmosphere and we always book to ensure we... More

A great start to Christmas. My wife and I booked a table at the Butt and Oyster through a recommendation from a close friend and we're so glad they did. A cosy atmosphere, great staff and of course excellent food. The vegetarian selection was really good, we went for the No Fish & Chips which had a huge amount of... More
