Reviewed 15 November 2009

We stayed for three nights in room 6, it had top quality bedding and fine furnishing. Only drawback was even the double glazing didn`t stop the lorries rattling past from waking us up around 6am so if you are a light sleeper suggest you choose a room overlooking the garden! Bottled water (incl) in the rooms but 24/7 room service is offered.

The bar has well kept local beer and a log fire which still attracts local trade.
The staff were enthusiastic & well briefed when serving in the restaurant. We sampled their 8 course tasting menu accompanied by a flight of wines. Stunning flavours and presentation -recommended!
The 3 course set menu @ £20 is very good value and included locally sourced meat. All cooked to perfection.
Breakfast is included and we had the choice of kippers, salmon or full english. The porridge with maple syrup was good too!

Its location is great for exploring quaint Suffolk villages like Kersey, Lindsay, Lavenham (try the Great House for great french cooking and service), Long Melford and Hadleigh (for an unspoilt market town with loads of character).
All in all it is one of the best hotels we have been to for personal attention and character and the food is worthy of a michelin star!
