Visited on 15th March. Food presented very well and very hot which was great. Service took a little while but not really an issue. Also has a dog friendly part to the restaurant which is a definite plus for a future visit.

Christmas meal with 9 people . Good menu selection to choose from . Food and service was of good quality although we were disapointed at getting just one roast potato each . we were seated in a nice secluded area of the pub away from other diners .

Visited here last week, It was packed, glad we had booked. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was very tasty home cooked food with fresh vegetables . This seems to be rarity these days. The prices were also very reasonable. I shall be back again soon.

Saracens roast lamb... WOW! Best lamb in Suffolk. Coming from someone who is fussy with food I must say that this pub has some of the best dishes I have ever tasted. Would also recommend the desserts which are freshly prepared and delicious.. the Saracens Strawberry puff being my favourite. Prices are reasonable and the Christmas menu looks delicious and...
