This was our only disappointment on our Pub Tour of Suffolk. All the other pubs we visited (from the CAMRA Good Beer Guide) were genuine friendly places with a good focus on beer. This place is essentially food orientated, with lots of false décor, e.g. old books stacked on shelved etc..
All this could be excused if the beer was in great condition, but it was probably the least appealing pint I had in our four days in Suffolk pubs.
All in all, if you like good beer and a genuine pub experience, this is probably one to give a miss.
Lastly, I nearly threw up when the waitress approached us and came out with “Would we be wanting menus?” She actually turned out to be nice girl, but it kind of summed the place up.
I am sure they will not miss the beer enthusiasts, as their focus is people who spend big money on fancy food.
