It's winter, so there's mulled wine, yum. It went beautifully with the fish and chips :) The staff are welcoming and there's a choice of an open fire or wood burner to sit near.

Delightful and hard to fault, this pub is always welcoming, with an imaginative menu at fair prices - main courses £10-15 - and the food is always excellent. Top quality real ales too. Well worth the diversion...

The Moon and Mushroom is a quaint 16th century Inn. It is believed it was used as a staging post for prisoners being deported to the Colonies from the Ipswich Assizes. This beautiful old Pub was featured by Sky News all day during the Jubilee weekend and we were chosen from all of East Anglia to light the Rural Beacon which was televised nationally and internationallyThe Moon and Mushroom has won The Best Country Village Pub for Food and Drink on 2 separate occasions.Real Ale from small East Anglia Micro Breweries is served straight from the Tap Room and our varied menu is all locally sourced and cooked here on the premises.This is a fabulous old pub with no juke box, one armed bandit or television
