After a bike ride to Aldeburgh and fish and chips for lunch we only wanted a small evening meal. Staff couldn't be friendlier and food delicious so had to go for a baked Camembert starter and salad. All great

First of all let's mention the fly issue on someone's previous review. The pub is in the country, by a river and you can't use spray or an electric fly killer. Staff do their best but it's an unfortunate issue. On our visit there were...More
