A REAL STEP BACK IN TIME.

The Low House still retains the character of a pub from the turn of 19th Century, there is no bar but a tap room where all drinks are served from, the main seating area is dominated by a large fire place with cosy pew seating and tiled floors, it really is a step back in history.

We have been visiting this beautiful pub for many years. The last time we ate here, about 16 months ago the food was lovely, which, combined with the lovely setting, made for a memorable evening. This time, sadly, the food was really not up to scratch. The vegetables were not only undercooked, the broccoli in particular looked as if it... More

Today I had the worst, so called, 'fish pie' at the Low House, Laxfield. This fish pie had two pieces of white fish and the remainder included 2 mussels and about 5 baby squid - which I could not eat. Surely if they want to include what we recognise as 'sea food', (Mediterranean or otherwise) they should not call it... More

We were staying within a very short walk of the Low House and decided to view first hand its Tap Room, now almost unique. A genuine old fashioned country pub as it turned out which served a really good pint of Adnams bitter from the wood. The only disappointment was in the choice of food. We viewed the menu board...

Had lunch here today, not having been for several years. The pub used to be one of our favourites. Oh dear! Such a disappointment! Not a free house any more, so only Adnams to choose from, and the pint that my hubby had was flat! The menu looked good though, and the chef was kind enough to make me a... More

We visited this this pub for lunch,. this was our first visit, we found the staff very friendly the food good. I had the rack of ribs, saulted potatoes and home made coleslaw. my wife settled for the ham eggs and bubble, both very enjoyable and generous portions at a reasonable cost. The bonus was finding the beer served from... More

Another wonderful, mouthwatering meal at The Low House. Food was excellent, service friendly and beere great as always. A real treat. We stayed in the pub accommodation which was pleasant and the breakfast very generous, my husband was beaten by the full English which was a surprise. Would happily travel up from Bedfordshire again.

We wanted a traditional pub and this is certainly one of those. a unique pub in a lovely location that serves great local produce. The pub itself is of historical interest and is unique in the fact that there is no bar as such, but a room that serves you traditional ales and drinks.....We loved the nooks and crannies and...
