Ate here twice recently after recommendations from relatives who live in a nearby village. We found it to be a lovely quaint establishment with low beams and a wishing well. The food and service was great on both occasions....will definitely return on our next visit to Suffolk.

A family member booked a table during the week for Sunday 28th August.when we presented ourselves at the bar NO TABLE had been reserved in the name in which it was ordered in. We eventually got a table no waitress came after 30 min so one of the party got up and asked for a menu.Food was poor in quantity and qaulity,fresh veg turned out to be smash potatoes.no one came for dessert or coffee order.
Very poor servive will not be going back again !!.

Always enjoyed nice evening meals and great service , just pity it drop it's standards on our last visit . Staff was rather rude when we asked to place our order , having been seated by now for half hour . When asked to place our order was told she was bust but she continued to stand talk to two other waitresses for another ten min's . Food was not the best we had had infact it was cold . The noise level from the next table was so bad we could not even have a conversation with the clients we had taken out for a meal . We will not be returing in a hurry .

We went searching for somewhere to eat and I used to go to The 4 Horseshoes years ago. It was a Monday night and the car park was full! We went in and although the pub was really busy we were looked after from the beginning. The food was very good and home-made. A super evening.

We were recommended by fellow guests staying in local farmstay B&B. Enjoyed evening meal so much on first visit we returned the next night.
Staff were friendly - pleasant and attentive. Food was most enjoyable. If we're ever back in the locality we'll certainly re-visit.

Took my parents to lunch on Mothering Sunday, if felt like we were part of a massive coach party, met at the door and ticked off a list and quickly seated. Basically it was carvery with soggy roast potatoes and parsnips, over cooked veg and over cooked meat. Not impressed.

Visited this establishment for a quite drink with just two adults in tow ~ the bar area has now been compromised by the restaurant and therefore very little seating left for non diners.

We found a table in the bar area which was not laid up ~ and we were asked to move so they could lay up. The restaurant was absolutely empty with no one waiting ~ so we asked what time the table was booked for.....which they then stated they didn't know......

We left the table an hour after being asked to move and guess what ~ the restaurant was still empty.....

This place needs to work out is it a pub or restaurant. ....?
