This is one of the best eating places in Suffolk. Good honest food. Fair prices. Superb service. Marta is an absolute angel and the ultimate hostess. I've used this restaurant for many years and since Marta has taken over it has become brilliant. It does exactly what it says on the tin. I only wish I could get there more... More

We visited this pub by chance and were greeted by the mother and daughter landladies who were wonderful. A quiet pub with good food and entertainment and a real family feel to it. We felt like we were sitting in their front room and were made very welcome. Say hi to Marta for us!

We were quite disappointed with the blandness of the carvery. Adequate quantity but poor quality. The food was tasteless and appeared uninspiring. Staff pleasant enough and very attentive. Cheesecake was unbeatable - it had the texture of scrambled egg on soggy pastry.

Visited on a very busy Sunday afternoon. We chose this place because the website stated gluten free Yorkshire pudding and gravy available. As I said it was very busy but the friend staff seated us immediately without a reservation and drinks followed quickly. We were advised to wait for the queue at the carvery to ease and the waitress let... More
