As soon as you step inside you get a real feel of a typical real Suffolk pub, the timber, fire place and low ceilings are all fantastic features. A very cosy, friendly and well run pub with excellent home made food.

I've been a couple of times since I moved into the area. I find it a lovely quiet pub , food is great, well priced and arrives very quickly. Very personal service. I particularly like the way they don't have loud music blaring away, so you can have a proper relaxed conversation with friends. So good service, food, easy parking,... More

The fillet steak I had was done to perfection and accompanied by plenty of chips, mushrooms & tomato - and a lovely side salad consiting of potato salad, cole slaw and a green salad. Personally, I'd had sufficient to eat with just... More

After this time, i went up to the bar and politely informed the lady behind the bar that i was... More

Again the food was good and plenty of it. Lots of parking space, large beer garden and friendly staff. Already booked for another... More

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
