Food was nice, the sauce with the stew had far too much tomato sauce could of used a bit of chilli for a tang. Mostly salmon and not much seafood alongside it. Other meals were fantastic so we may have been given the last few scrapings of the stew.

I took my parents here when they visited Suffolk and it was wonderful! The location is stunning and the food was great - we had sandwiches, chips, and a ploughman's lunch. The food was all local and the atmosphere was very welcoming. I've previously had their fish which was lovely. Well worth a visit but it does get very busy!

Absolutely exquisite food. No more to be said. Brilliant selection of fresh fish dishes. Slightly more expensive than your average restaurant but worth every penny.

We ate here at lunchtime and came with a pram and a wheel chair user. There is a car park out back which was quite full but there are paying car parks near by. We sat outside and enjoyed the views. There was not table service but we ordered at the bar. We had the scampi and the cod. The... More

Sat outside over looking the Orwell River. Had excellent meal & service good. Good selection of real ales. Interior of pub unspoilt and well worth a visit. Can be busy at weekends, particularly when the sun shines, but worth it. Note the lane down to Pin Mill is narrow in parts, so drive with care.

Came here with my partner and friends on a Sunday afternoon. As we didn't book we either had to wait an hour for dining room or eat in the bar area which we chose to do. Good choices on the menu, reasonably priced and friendly staff! It brightened up after we ate so we had a chance to sit outside... More

This was the perfect setting for a luncheon on a warm summer's day overlooking the river and the boats and watching the seabirds - of which there were loads and they were very vocal! The restaurant was very busy and I am assured that it is like this all the time - which was no surprise to me. The staff... More

I visited the pub whilst walking the costal path with friends. It is in a lovely setting, with plenty of seating to the front for Summer days. We did not eat in the pub, so cannot comment on the food, but found the beer to be of good quality and the staff were friendly and helpful. We would visit again.

Went down for lunch... Very busy even for 1pm not much for a lunch menu and all main meals looked and were massive... Girl that served us our drinks had a face like a wet weekend but the Girl that seated us was very pleasant and helpful with the specials. Had fish and chips and scampi and chips couldn't fault...

When we arrived we sat outside where a girl sitting behind us was telling her companion about the number of punters she had persuaded to have steak at £17.50 plus £1.50 for a sauce. She worked there apparently. She was also debating whether she would get a discount or not. We decided to try the Butt and Oyster after having... More
