Great pub with good food and lovely patio. Located in a centuries old building (like many in Woodbridge) this pub is a popular local pub has a lively atmosphere!

A good selection of cask ales. A limited menu but the quality of the food we had for dinner was excellent food. A very good convivial atmosphere with a mixture of locals and visitors.
