Most reviewers seem to think that The Suffolk Punch public house is a good place to take children to see the nice horses ! The pub has being doing quite well lately but it is not full of big brown animals.

Visited with family, the grandchildren loved it. Staff very friendly and informative and had time to answer any questions. Plenty to do, the horses there are beautiful. Plenty of other animals to see and they enjoyed the ride. A good family day out
