Tea and coffee with cakes is available if that is your preferred choice. Be assured a warm welcome awaits you.

We gave this pub a try when we were visiting Framlingham Castle, next door. I was a bit surprised on entering as it looked more like a modern coffee bar than the Olde Worlde pub I was expecting. Not put off we ordered some meals at the bar. We have 2 fussy vegetarian children and a 6 year old, but they were catered for with jacket potatoes and a child’s portion of cheesy pasta. I was impressed that the cider was
Aspall Cyder, rather than the usual Strongbow/Bulmers/Magners (which I find tasteless) so I was happy with my pint. Our food was served very quickly and tasted good. My only objection was a male member of the bar staff, jokingly shouting very loudly across to a girl member of staff as she left the pub, “I’ve told you before I won’t have sex with you”. Not what you want shouted out in front of your inquisitive 6 year old, I don’t really want to discuss the facts of life when I’m trying to eat. When we’d finished our meals, we took the last of our drinks and sat outside with a view of the castle. Heaven.
