Good Fish-n-ChipsGreat place to have a pint.

Traditional pub, near RAF Mildenhall to grab a pint. They need more wait staff to cut down on the long queue for drinks.

Rooms like a 1950's Butlins... More

We enjoyed tasty 3 course evening meal, great value on senior person menu. Portions generous, tasty food tidily presented. Only a short wait initially then comfortable time between courses. Pleasant staff,table service excellent..... Menu varied, however special offers appear to be Monday - Friday.

The place can get busy during lunch and dinner being just off the base. The atmosphere is great and the breakfast is amazing.
