Travellers' Choice
Revitalised and reopened in October 2013. The Packhorse Inn offers a truly stunning dining and staying experience. Mediocrity is most certainly not on the menu or indeed any aspect of this eight bedroom country inn, which deliberately sets out to stretch the definition of "pub" to the limit. Awards/Recognition: • 3 AA Rosettes • 5 AA Stars for accommodation • Listed in The Times' 'Ultimate 100 British hotels' feature. • Sawday's "Favourite Newcomer" • Winner "Best Food Pub" in The Great British Pub Awards • Sawday's "Favourite Newcomer" • Listed in the Michelin Guide and The Good Food Guide Location: Rural Suffolk village just two and a half miles from Newmarket, the historic home of horse racing. Facilities: • 8 individually designed en suite bedrooms • a large dining and bar area • garden/terrace • club room for business meetings & events Food & Drink: The menu is best described as Modern European, catering for all tastes, from our affordable fixed price menu through to the a la carte, which delivers smart, contemporary dishes full of vibrant flavours.

Myself and my husband stayed in a courtyard room . Very nice room Had a delicious evening meal . Equally nice breakfast. Very close to the warren gallops so I was able to indulge in my hobby of running ....up early before breakfast for a quick run whilst enjoying the spectacle of racehorses being exercised. Would pay a return visit without hesitation

What a delight! Lovely room and superb dinner. I would suggest that rooms in the hotel are probably better than the ones with a courtyard as the courtyard is a car park really. Could not fault it. Warm welcome, friendly, polite service all the way. Would recommend!

We visited the Packhorse on the 5th October. It’s great to see clear instructions and actions taken by the packhorse to maintain COVID-19 guidelines, we felt incredibly safe visiting. The food was faultless - the hispi cabbage starter is a must try!!!! Looking forward to our next visit

Had a lovely 2 night stay here. The room was lovely & spotlessly clean. Lovely area too for walking & very local to Newmarket. Breakfast was delicious & we ate here one night. The lamb was the best I’ve eaten. Service was a bit slow at breakfast on our last day but the waitress was so lovely, friendly & helpful & a credit to them If I was to fault anything it was that the towels were only changed if you stayed 3 nights upon asking & ours were a bit damp from the previous day. A wonderful stay & would most definitely return.

Arrived tired and hungry after a long walk in the surrounding countryside. Hadn't booked. Such a lovely, professional team of staff made our visit welcoming, warm and a great experience. The food was just superb. Highly recommended. Want to go back for dinner and wine - the wine list looked great!
