We were so pleased that we couldn’t resist the chance to stay in a pub called 'Eels Foot'! We spent three nights in this lovely traditional and friendly Inn. Our room was comfortable, spacious and well equipped. It could have been a bit warmer, but I appreciate we were there on some of the coldest nights of the year. The bed was one of the best I have slept in away from home. Breakfast could not have been better, all freshly cooked and masses of it - good coffee too. The Inn has a good choice of evening meals, all of which are reasonably priced and very well cooked. Staff and locals all made us feel very welcome and were happy to recommend places to visit. Our main purpose for being in the area was to visit RSPB Minsmere, just a five minute drive away. Seeing a bittern, a hen harrier and a starling roost, ticked three of my 'must do's!! Also close by and well worth a visit were Soutwold, Aldeburgh and Snape Maltings as well as the lovely (even in December) Suffolk coast. If possible, stay at Eels Foot on a Thursday night when many local musician gather in the bar for a 'jam' session. One of the best evenings we have enjoyed for a long time. We shall certainly return.

Stayed here for one night a Friday to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Good clean accommodation at the rear of the pub, with a good view. Had evening meal in the pub which was very good, although at busy periods I guess it can be busy, but then again it's a traditional pub and not a restaurant. Staff were friendly and helpful. Situated in area which is great for walking and taking in the coastal views. Good value for money. I would stay again and recommend it as a bit of a gem!

We booked a weekend break via laterooms for my husbands birthday, as it was near Minsmere, he being a kenn birdwatcher. On the morning we were due to arrive, we received a very aplologetic phone call from the landlord to say that he had unfortunately overbooked. Oh dear, we thought! However, he couldnt have been more helpful. He booked us into alternative upmarket accomodation for the first night without charging, and took us to and fro personally. A lovely touch was a huge bouquet of flowers waiting in the room. We were soon settled into our booked room the next morning after a wonderful breakfast. This room turned out to be lovely, and we thought it much more appealling than the previous one.We felt very much at home here, and the bar food was great.. A very enjoyable weekend, so we insisted on paying for the first night. We hope to go back

Stayed at the Eels Foot for two nights while visiting Minsmere RSPB reserve nearby as novice birdwatchers and would echo everything said in the last review, (in particular the excellence of the breakfast sausages). The spacious ground floor twin room was perfect for me and my 80 year old mother. (Nowhere to plug in hairdryer near a mirror but that is a small point and the owners were intending to rectify this!). All just what we wanted and more. Warm, comfortable, characterful, very clean, good food and the bird reserve on the doorstep and Southwold a short drive away.

3 members of our family stayed in this picturesque inn on the night of Jan. 2, 2010. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and is situated just behind the pub, in a purpose built building, which looks much older than it is. Our room had a lovely view over fields. We had dinner in the pub and the food was well cooked, basic pub food, which was served promptly. The staff were pleasant and friendly. The breakfast was really good. My daughter said that the sausages were the best she had ever tasted! Again the service was friendly. I think that we had value for money and really enjoyed our stay.
