This pub/restaurant is just off (less than a mile) the A140 at Thornham Magna and is a great find as it is a little off the main route. It is worth the diversion. It is an extremely old thatched pub claimed to be the oldest...More

We live reasonably locally to this pub, it is a beautiful quaint Suffolk building, and very popular judging by the amount of cars in car park whenever we drive past. Over the years we have visited several times, usually when we have friends staying with...More

Yes, dogs are welcome in our bar area and beer garden. There would be no problem at all with getting a carvery at 2:45 but a call ahead would always be appreciated. We hope to see you soon!
