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.

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.

I've been here twice. The first time I met some friends for drinks. It was a good time, service and food was what you would expect for a local pub... Average. It's not a five star restaurant but the food is good after a few pints! The second time I was staying close, the weather wasn't great so I popped... More

When is a gammon steak not a gammon steak here, good if you want two bacon chops instead. Chicken skewers overcooked very dry and they may well have not asked if you wanted BBQ sauce as non existance. No management around to complain to just two overworked staff in public area, and who knows in the kitchen but not a... More
