“Excellent cod, shame about the rest”
Reviewed 12 August 2010

Attracted by the advertising outside we decided to have cod and chips for lunch. This was ordered after a very long wait at the bar. When it arrived the 'basket' container was swimming in fat and the peas were shrivelled up and unappealing. There was no tartar sauce available as none had been delivered! However, the cod was tasty. Very disappointing.

“Tasty Food and Excellent service”
Reviewed 6 June 2010

Had lunch at this pub at the end of a walk around the coast near Orford and it was a pleasure to eat there. For starters we had both the seafood and meat platters to share between the four of us and we probably could have managed with just one with the variety and quantity provided. I had the fish and chips as a main course and the batter on the fish was the best I have tasted in a long time. I had a taste of the ham as well and it was mouth watering. We will definitely be going back in the future.
