Our first visit for a splendid and unhurried sunday lunch with every effort made to keep a two year old grandchild happy.

A quiet location, which is well signposted easy parking wih roast beef and gravy to die for,

Firstly, try to ignore the negative reviews that are on this page. Although I appreciate peoples experiences can’t be changed there is always an element of bad timing and this is a relatively new venture getting off the ground. There will some creases to iron out I’m sure but this is a fab dining experience in a very cool location. We have been back for the third time today and had probably the best Sunday roast in Suffolk. Our past dining at the dark horse was fantastic, and on both occasions took friends here that were very much impressed.

Thanks again for a great lunch !

I read the last review and felt that I also had to write my comments about this restaurant. We went on a Saturday night and the menu is small but sounded lovely . We also had the problem that there were starters , mains and puddings that were not available as they had sold out !! The food was ok but nothing amazing and we waited ages for our food to arrive. we were very disappointed as we thought being number 1 on trip advisor we were going to experience great food but unfortunately most of it was not available !! .

If you fancy somewhere a bit different then check out The Dark Horse. It is set in a converted coaching yard and stables. Relaxing in the old horse stalls after your meal is lovely and relaxing,

We booked this restaurant based on it's number one position in Suffolk. It's in a nice building, an old stable block, and the welcome was warm. But of the five starters, only one was available, carrot and coriander soup: not exactly a gourmet delight. I had asked for the other soup, broccoli, stilton and ham hock, but that was off. However, there was some parsnip and chilli soup, and the manager offered to put some ham hock in that if we wanted. Of the six mains, only two were available, and as we asked for each one and were told it was unavailable, it started to turn into a Monty Python Cheese shop sketch. I has the tortellini bolognaise, which was about at ASK standard. They knocked up a steak (not on the menu) for my friend, but didn't ask how he would like it done. It was okay. We passed on the deserts, as they had largely disappeared earlier. The Manager was very apologetic and reduced the bill. He said they had a last minute booking of 20 guests and he had under-ordered. That said, the food we did have was only so-so.
