We headed here as we wanted a late lunch, and a beer garden with play equipment (tick all those boxes). I ordered a steak and ale pie (on the specials board) and my other half was going to have the burger. The cheery bar tender said I'd made a good choice, so in fear of food envy, the other half...

We decided to go here for dinner for my mother-in-law as this used to be her favourite place to go. We booked a table for 7pm & arrived on time, being very busy the bar staff (inc landlord) looked very stressed & drained, it wasn't very welcoming to the customers & the landlord was very rude & arrogant when serving....

Smal but clean and tidy, good breakfast and had a good meal the night before. Will stay again when visiting family. A bit of a jaunt from Ipswich but easy to find. Stairs to bedroom check if you can't manage stairs

Friendly cheerful staff who are helpful, what more could one ask ? It's not a luxury establishment ,just comfy... More

Your on a drive, looking for a pub and this is the type you dream of finding. Ample car park, kids outdoor play area. Quaint but not cramped inside. Good, honest pub food, reasonably priced. Fantastic staff - example, reserved us a table inside, we sat outside as kids played and then they came to let us know our food... More

Booked in advance for Sunday lunch. The place was quite when we arrived so finding a table was easy. The food arrived promptly. I would highly recommend the sizzling 12 oz rump with homemade onion rings. Which arrived literally sizzling on its plate. Service was very good. Would come again if in the area.

We were given our table which fortunately we had booked as it was a busy saturday lunch time. The two guys had the large steaks and they were huge. They ate them though and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the scampi which was delicious. If there was going to be a negative i would say the tables were tight but... More

Arrived on a Saturday evening for a meal out with friends. It should have been lovely, but unfortunately it wasn't. The staff with the exception of one, were offhand, bored, rude, disinterested. We were not offered menus, drinks or asked if our food was ok. It felt like they just wanted us to eat quickly and then leave. The house... More
