Called in for a quick sandwich and a beer but ended up having a full blown lunch, it was so inviting! Great location by the river and the pub is tastefully decorated whilst keeping its olde worlde charm - great food too, so every ones a winner!

Located at idyllic Pin Mill on the shores of the River Orwell, the Butt and Oyster is run by Deben Inns, a local operation with several outlets, all delivering decent, competent fare in interesting locations.

We enjoyed our meals at the Butt and Oyster very much. The food came much faster when we were seated outside. The service inside was very slow. The good food and reasonable prices made up for the indifferent service.

Had very enjoyable meal with friends Friday night. Food of good standard, service good and the ambience etc superb. I love this place and go whenever in area. Food good but could be better and if it was they'd be queuing out the door.

Having grown up in the area the Butt and oyster alas been a favourite for over 40yrs It's changed over the years from a pub on the river to a mainly food based operation with the advent of modern transportation it also gets very busy but it is easy to pick quiet times Having moved a few miles away we...

Went here with a friend for his birthday he came down from London & wanted to go somewhere quiet. The food was lovely & service was ok. Our only gripe was my friend ordered the fish stew and they only gave him a fork and knife he should have been given a spoon for the lovely sauce it was cooked... More
