Real ale, varied menu with fabulous puddings. Pleasant service and surroundings. This part of Suffolk not so well known but it’s easy access to Clare, Cavendish and Lavenham. A quiet treasure and well worth a visit.

Went for lunch but very disappointed with the food. Sandwiches with brown sliced bread instead of the granary advertised in the menu. Cold pork and stuffing filling sent back as inedible. Beer good.
