We’ve enjoyed fabulous take-away fresh fish and chips twice now. Our food was waiting for us at our agreed collection time and the cleaning and distancing measures in place give confidence in these difficult times. Very pleased to support a local business and landmark that...we will need once this Coved nightmare is over.More

The best Sunday carvery we have ever had. The two joints had been cooked to perfection with both beef & pork being succulent, juicy & tasty with a very generous helping. The pork crackling was crunchy and very moreish. A good range of help yourself...vegetables were also well cooked and presented. We shared a starter of whitebait and finished with a devine pudding. The young waitresses did an admirable job of looking after us. To sum it up this meal was so good that we have booked again and taking four of our friends to show ut off.More

We first visited for the Sunday Carvery, we were so impressed we came back with some family for another carvery a few weeks later. Again much impressed with all of the food, the service and the ales we returned again with some friends for a...weekday lunch. The special chicken dish was superb, the cheese and potato pie excellent (what lovely pastry!) and the traditional puddings great. What a find, just a pity it is not a little more local to us.More

This does good pub food, nothing exceptional but well done and good value. The carvery was very popular with locals and walkers. Nice building and good setting

Visited this excellent pub on the afternoon of a friend’s daughter’s wedding. As I was the DJ, I’d spent the morning setting up just down the road and as it happened the pub had been festooned with 100 plus of our wedding guests taking the...opportunity of a quick sharpener before the ceremony, the church being directly opposite. My able assistant Matt & I arrived, starving after a morning’s graft, just after the guests had left so there was some trepidation as to whether they were still serving/ run out food etc ( this being Suffolk where #12 till 2 syndrome which sadly afflicts many a fine establishment in those parts ).... the place was still very busy with the usual superannuated cyclists, ramblers etc... the Landlady could not have been more welcoming despite her & her staff being run off their feet... she gave us a menu & asked us to find us a seat and someone would be with us as soon as they could... well they had a lovely menu : all very fresh, local & homemade & true to her word we had our order taken within 10 minutes. I had dressed crab which was sublime. Matt had scampi & chips. Having worked in many ( & indeed owned a few) bars & pubs I was most impressed and can strongly recommend a visit.More
