Went with a wedding party of 12 for lunch. The food was pretty much average pub food but well cooked and a welcoming friendly service, outside in their garden. The children's menu looked good and would recommend it for families. Would certainly return,

Several of us had a very enjoyable lunch here. All had different meals, all were good. My tasty jerk chicken in pitta with salad made a great generous snack lunch and I enjoyed my guest beer - Ready, Steady Go from Cliff Quay brewery. The other meals and snacks were generous and well appreciated too. The staff were friendly and... More

First time in the area visiting a nearby nursery. Warm welcome and great food for lunch. The crispy beef starter was amazing. Pity we could not find room for a desert, good size portions of delicious food. Good pint of Adnams too! We will definitely be back.

We dont often travel to Diss but this place, two miles outside the town is very well worth a visit. Superb food and lots of it - locally sourced, home cooked with great skill and friendly staff. We will definitely be going back,

We stopped for a fantastic pint and had Soup of the day - Pea and Rocket. The soup was superb and the beer was excellent. Dogs are welcome too which is very welcome .

Everyone is friendly and welcoming. I enjoy the whole experience. However I struggle with finding food that I know I will personally enjoy as I am a fussy eater and there isn't a large range, so I return to the same dish every time. The food is to a good standard and the dessert is alway excellent and a highlight... More

We decided to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary and once again Steve and Bev excelled themselves and ensured we had a fabulous meal in welcoming surroundings. All the meals we have had here have always been first class and we'll definitely be back soon!

Went here with high expectations following other reviews but was extremely disappointed. Nice location, great beer and very friendly but the food was dreadful. Tiger prawn starters were almost tasteless, asparagus soup tasted like a bowl of salt. As it was Sunday we went for the roast, beef was acceptable other than a rock-hard Yorkshire pudding which was virtually inedible... More

Lovely pub in beautiful setting. Have eaten here several times and food always been good. Can't comment on previous two reviews as wasn't there but was there following night when landlord verbally abused customer in front of five year old child. Good food, nice bar staff, not recommended for families.
