The Eels Foot Inn


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Landlord Julian Wallis and his team welcome you to this traditional inn . The Eel's Foot nestles in the pretty hamlet of Eastbridge in the heart of the Heritage Coast and on the doorstep of RSPB Minsmere Reserve. We are fortunate to be part of the Adnams 'Golden Triangle' in close proximity to Aldeburgh, Dunwich and Southwold. For lovers of Music and the Arts, The Eel's Foot Inn is just a short hop from Snape Maltings home to the world famous Concert Hall operated by Aldeburgh Music. Also Henham Park, the venue for 'Latitude.' A spectacular festival for the performing arts featuring incredible talent in music, theatre, comedy, literature, poetry and cabaret. Very much a family friendly event!

First visit here today. Was staying at a friend’s caravan nearby. Lovely traditional country pub. We all opted for a roast beef dinner. It was delicious and the service was good. Would definitely visit again if I’m back in the area.

Stopped for a light lunch and ordered the Eels Foot Special Welsh Rarebit with smoked haddock, absolutely delicious although I wouldn't describe it as'light'. Will definitely be returning.

Havent been here for a while and think it's changed hands. We were warmly welcomed by Amy and pleased to learn The Eels Foot serving all day so we were able to get a meal at around 3.30/4pm. Beers are mainly Adnams and a pint...More

Have visited in summer, but this was on a cold but bright and frosty day. After a nice walk the open fires were welcoming and the soup and sandwiches hit the spot.Always a very welcoming venue.

Every time we visit this tucked away pub my instincts tell me not to eat here. I keep hoping someone from Adnams will step and sort it out once and for all. Last meal we had there, under duress from my partner, was exactly as...More

Great evening at the pub with hearty food and excellent beer. Very good service too. No one batted an eyelid at our board games before dinner - we felt relaxed and welcome.

HI I am unsure, I agree with Annettes reply - the team at the Eels foot are very hospitable and I am sure they would arrange something delicious if there is not a vegan selection.
