We stayed for one night in February and had a lovely meal in the bar served by very friendly staff. We were really looking forward to breakfast but it was so disappointing. Smoked haddock was ordered by my husband and I decided on kippers. The waiter came back and said they had no kippers quickly followed by the chef putting his head around the door and saying he had found a kipper that I could have. I knew this was a mistake to have it but I felt I couldn't say no. While these were cooking my husband decided to have some marmalade. Jams and marmalade were in ramekins and neither my husband or the waiter could decide which was jam and which was marmalade. Our breakfasts arrived but on tasting my kipper it was only luke warm which leads me to think it was frozen and had not been thawed out properly. My husband's smoked haddock was also luke warm. We pushed them to one side and when the waiter came to clear the plates he did not ask us what was wrong with them. My husband told the waiter that they were a real disappointment but the waiter just walked off. We decided to have some toast with marmalade but unfortunately the toast was burnt- something that should not happen. It was fortunate that we had such a nice meal the night before.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A village pub with a difference. Our addiction to fresh, top quality, locally sourced where possible produce, combined with a thirst for excellence have evolved into what has been described as a "must go to place on the Suffolk coast." Our approach to food is robust; we want to put on each plate satisfying combinations of flavours and textures. We have a good range of characterful draught beers, and numerous world class bottled beers, organic soft drinks and over 150 drop dead lovely wines from some of the earth’s most inspired winemakers. We offer the same menu throughout, with more formal Restaurant dining on a bookings basis and more relaxed walk-ins, in the Bar. We also have seating for 150 outside on three terraces, with table service available for those warmer days. Our renovated flint barn is a highly versatile space, equipped with a drop-down screen and a projector, ideal for business meetings, strategy reviews, team building exercises, corporate training, presentations, film showings or private parties to mention just a few of its uses. It has been put to good use in the cause of village based charity fund raising projects as well as providing the theatre for Food Safari events, cask beer festivals and the Aldebrough Doc.
