We had a family meal for 8, for a birthday. The pub has a fantastic, chilled vibe, and the food selection catered for all. Great portion sizes, and very accommodating upon special requests! We had a lovely evening, topped off by Marks entertainment, adding to...the experience when you dine at the Moon and Mushroom. We look forward to coming again soon!More

The Inn has been beautifully decorated with fairy lights twinkling everywhere, looks lovely inside and out. We visited here for a family Sunday lunch get together, We had the choice from the blackboard and menu and we decided to go for a sort of early...Christmas Lunch. I had the nut roast, sis n brother had turkey, pops had roast beef. Wide variety of veg, lovely roast potatoes and some cheese cauliflower. It was really nice to have sprouts that hadnt been nuked into a soggy splodge, but cooked very well, I wish I had asked for more cauliflower cheese, sadly i only got a teaspoon full, but we were to busy nattering and chatting and enjoying our dads company to ask. Im sure if I had asked, I would have got more. Dad n sislaw had a sponge and ice cream desert, which they both enjoyed. Good service, reasonably priced drinks, all in all we had a very nice lunch and enjoyed the early Christmas atmosphere.More

I love this pub, excellent food, fantastic beer and great staff. Other customers are always nice and there is often a doggo to say hello to! Haven't had a bad meal there yet! Steak is always cooked to perfection.

Lovely few stew and gluten-free lemon sponge pudding and custard - all good home cooking with a great welcome, esp as we had booked for Saturday night and turned up on Friday! This pub is well above average in all respects.

Lovely country pub visited whilst on holiday, was not easy to find as we were strangers to the area. Nice welcome from the really friendly barman, we had porters beer which was a really good pint of beer. We both had the burger which tasted...really good with chips and salad. The only small problem was we both had sticky toffee pudding with custard and the custard came in a large egg cup shape pot, well we all know you need plenty of custard with a sticky toffee pudding so we struggled with it as so little custard to eat it with. I mentioned to the barman and he apologised and said we only had to ask for more if we wanted, well you don`t like to as for more. This never took the shine off a really nice evening and good food that we enjoyed.More

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately on the night you came we had a new member of staff in the kitchen and the dessert was taken out without being checked. Normally the pots are full to the top. We are a really friendly pub and...More

We are a family of nine who dined at the pub in the eveing inside. The pub has a selection of real, local ales on tap which we enjoyed. The menu was not large, but adequate and tasty. All of our party enjoyed the food....Being a smaller pub it was empty, except for us by 9pm. The landlord was pleasant, engaging and gave a warm welcome. So all in all, everything you would expect for experiencing a small, cosy country pub - worth the trip from Needham Market.More

Visited yesterday after hearing a lot about this place. I was not disappointed- there is a great selection of drinks including a very tasty gin, and a lovely varied menu with a specials board. We received a lovely warm welcome and were seated in the...main bar area which is cosy and comfortable. The service was just right, we weren’t rushed and nothing was too much trouble. The food was all delicious and the portion sizes were good. We will definitely go back soon, in fact I can’t wait!!More

I first saw the sign to this pub three years ago and the name alone was interesting. It's been on my list of to visit but lockdown struck. Went there last night with my wife. 20/08/21 and we where not disappointed. Good honest home cooked...food. Incredibly tasty. Friendly attentive service. Unbelievably cosy. The perfect country pub. And well worth the 50 minute drive from where we live. We will return very soon. Fantastic!More
