My wife and I spread our visits to Pubs in East Anglia for mostly lunches, choosing those with consistently good food, ambience and attentive staff, especially those where the meals are freshly made and cooked by the chef. So many are buying in the popular dishes readymade, the same dish shows up all over the place. We have visited the...

It's nice to find a dog friendly pub while you are on your holidays and the owner made a big fuss of our dog. We both had Sunday lunch and settled for the carvery. Good selection of meat and a wide array of veg. Meal was good but the veg and potato's could have been a little hotter. Good service...

Popped out for a quick lunch time snack. Ordered a cheese and pickle sandwich on granary bread. Unfortunately the bread was very stale. I returned it and said that I would have the same filling but in a warm baguette. It was soon replaced but I'm sorry to say that the baguette was not warm and didn't really seem cooked...

Oh no! This doesn't sound like our usual high standards! Our staff work so hard to try and make every guests visit a pleasant and relaxing on, (although some guests just aren't looking for that!) Please try to enjoy your time with us next time and maybe allow staff to help if your meal isn't to your satisfaction.

A somewhat belated review of our lovely visit on New Year's Eve. The meal was delicious and went way over expectations for a small village pub. My wife and I both had the pork loin in a very tasty sauce. The chef at the Shoes seems to excel in making tasty sauces. We booked to stay the night in Room...

Coming from the Surrey/ Hants border we needed somewhere to stay while house hunting over a two year period. We've stayed on a number of occasions and always found it to be ideal. It's a lovely atmospheric and relaxing place with good, sensible food, nice accommodation and friendly owners and staff. We never wanted to stay anywhere else as far...
