The dog is my local. One side is the homely, warm bar, maybe a little small but cosy. In the other is again a cosy restaurant. I have eaten many a time over the last few years, regularly, and it is incredible. Glorious steaks I've had a few of. If you go can, get here on a nice sunny day... More

We went here on Boxing day. Although the pub was busy, but not packed, the kitchen was obviously inadequately staffed to cope for the demand. We had a considerable wait for our mains and we gave up on the prospect of desert. We were never asked how our food was even when we made our way up to the bar... More

Dec17 2016 Very tasty and extremely well priced lunch menu. My one small criticism would be that the service could be improved upon. But the food, the log fire,Adnams on draught and general atmosphere made it a place we would certainly return to.

The food is adequate, although not as great as the menu suggests. The service is poor and very slow. The amateuristic staff, while charming, are inattentive and haphazard.

We popped in here on the off-chance on a Saturday lunch, it was comfortably full but not packed. The atmosphere was warm and cosy, with candles on the tables. We decided not to have starters; I had the burger which, as ever, was excellent while my wife had the braised pheasant which was simply magnificent. For dessert we both had... More

The standard of food was excellent, the service was excellent and the whole experience was excellent. The staff were very friendly and made us feel at ease. A must visit place in the Suffolk countryside.

I wish I had ordered the steak - my companion did, and let me try some. It was fantastic! Perfectly cooked and as to order. I had the belly pork, which was also extremely good, so no complaints there. The wine was delicious too - I would have loved some more but was unfortunately driving. Lovely service, cosy atmosphere, well... More

Had a good meal here for Christmas time for 7 of us. Staff were both friendly, polite and professional. Surprised the pub was so quiet, I guess it was a Sunday evening. Meals were good and the bread at the start was a nice touch. Not from the area but it was a nice pub to visit ... I guess... More
