Description
We are a traditional English pub in the Suffolk countryside providing great real ales and excellent home-cooked food. We can provide you with a quick snack or a sit down meal for up to 30 (buffets for up to 80) and everything else in between. Come and meet the locals with the kids and the dog (on a lead) and in summer enjoy our large beer garden and in winter the open fire. We also offer camping in the Paddock and self-catering accommodation in the Barn.
