Good quality food & service. Enjoyable afternoon. However price of drinks was over the top. £4.10 for a pint of Guiness is too much.

This pub bistro is ideal for family or sporting friends or two cousins having a quiet evening meal in the secluded Marlesham Brook location, with plenty of foyer photographic reminders, that this was once an important Royal Air Flying Corp WW1 hostelry and coaching staging inn, in a bygone era.
