“Disappointing”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Have eaten here several times in the past couple of years and always commented how good it was. Alas this time not so. Can't really put my finger on why. I started with the haddock and sweet potato riotto which was just o.k. apart from the accompanying sauce (mainly for decoration) which was extremely hot (spicy hot). For my main I chose the penne pasta with sweet potato and Gorgonzola. For me it wasn't served hot enough and the Gorgonzola was overpowering. My husband chose the prawns for his starter and he said it looked better than it actually was. For his main he chose whole sea bass wrapped in paper which he said was o.k. It was fairly busy but have seen it a lot busier and the food a lot better. Sorry. At £60 for two people it isn't cheap.

“quick excellent supper”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We ate here with friends at the last minute as other arrangements has gone awry. Our welcome was warm and the service and food were excellent in every way. if we were local, it would definitely be a regular place to eat and drink. The fish (it was 'fish week') was locally sourced and superbly cooked. We will definitely revisit when next in east Anglia.

“Nice ambience, good food”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

We visited the pub after a brisk winters dog walk from Framlingham. We were perished but they provided us with an excellent hot bowl of home made soup and crusty bread which hit the spot. We enjoyed the feel of the place so much we suggested it as an ideal venue for our parents wedding anniversary meal - they didn't disappoint again. Worth a visit.
