Nice country pub on the edge of the Minsmere reserve. It's an easy walk either along the road to the visitor centre or along a footpath which leads to the Sluice. Great food and an even better selection of Adnams beer.

We stayed in Room 6 on Sunday 3rd July for one night as we were visiting Minsmere RSPB reserve the next day. The staff were very friendly. The room was clean and spacious. Nice little touches such as tea and coffee tray, still and sparkling water for you to quench your thirst. The rooms were in a separate building which...

We dropped in for lunch yesterday and were very pleased that we did. The Eels Foot is comfortably furnished and avoids the trend of having too many tables. The menu was varied with plenty on the 'Specials' board, and when the food came it was delicious. Washing it down with Adnams Broadside (my favourite ale) may it even better. We...

The Eel's Foot was a great find, arrived late'ish on Saturday afternoon and headed to the pub for dinner around 7'ish, it was already busy! It wasn't too long before our huge plate of food arrived, it was...

Visited with my Dad for dinner and a couple of pints! Lots of beer to choose from, mostly from the local Adnams brewery which was great. Food was awesome, both had the fish and chips as we were late to arrive but we were still acquainted for, I will soon be returning!!

We holiday in Suffolk every year, have done for 20 years. We discovered the Eels Foot about 18 years ago. Since then it hasn't changed, and the food is still as good as ever. A charming olde world bar where time seems to have stood still. Service, beer and food always pleasurable.

Really worth the bike ride from Aldeburgh to this pub on bank holiday monday. The pub was heaving but soon managed to get a table. Good choice of beers. Made the selection of the Ploughmans with Ham and Blue Cheese - excellent. The quality of the ham and bread were excellent. Want to try the Welsh Rarebit next visit. Also,...

Very welcome lunch time stop on our walk around Minsmere. Super selection of Adnams beers and excellent food (we had sandwiches) served quickly in spite of being very busy for Sunday lunchtime. There is a children's play area and plenty of outside seating in the garden. Would certainly recommend.

You can't book for dinner - but we've never had a problem getting fed. Lively atmosphere, with a mix of locals and holiday makers. Swift service; attentive, but not in your face. All you need for a great, relaxed evening with friends.
