We decided to spend a day at Lakenheath watching the American Airforce. Close by we came across this quirky little gem. We prefer to stay at independently run pubs and this was no exception! We were well greeted on arrival and shown to our room (Lazy Cow!) where we had ordered champagne and flowers which were waiting for us. Over the head of the bed was a huge picture of dairy cattle which for us was like home from home as we live on the Isle of Wight and we see this out of the rear window of our apartment every day. Good sized clean room, everything you needed except bottled water, exceptional double shower. After a long journey and a quick freshen up we were down to the bar! Then came another lovely surprise. The food was absolutely tip top, could not fault it. Breakfast was no surprise after the evening meal ; everything freshly cooked to order and we were asked on more than one occasion was there anything else we needed. We will definitely be returning here.
