Typical Suffolk pub with individual touches. Lovely tasty food and served nicely for average prices. Would use again, very popular which frequently means good food. Willing to accommodate varying requirements of allergies or intolerances.

Quite a find, a little off the beaten track between Southwold and Halesworth. Good choice of real ale and beautiful quiet large beer garden. Puddings delicious too- I'm sure the main courses are as well but we didn't taste these. We'll be back.
