This review only concerns the way our problem was dealt with efficiently and professionally by Matt Martin the premises manager. Mr Martin explained that a booking mishap was Groupons sole responsibility albeit the day previous to our booking we were led to believe by a member of staff that our booking stood. Mr Martin refunded a token amount and offered... More

Had a traditional Sunday lunch here this week and it was surprisingly good for the relatively low price. Particularly loved the pear crumble and custard. Not haute cuisine, but great value combined with excellent service from Richard (and Jade). Thoroughly recommended.

Wow... What a jewel in the Suffolk crown this little gem of a place is. Lovely friendly staff, great atmosphere and most importantly CLEAN glasses :) We will be going back as I've been told by the regulars that the roast on Sunday is out of this world. Thanks to all for a relaxing and pleasant experience :)

This is my local, but having been on the scene in London, Bournemouth, Brighton, New York etc.... This is a really lovely pub:... The clicky and unfriendliness that plagues most gay venues just isn't the case here.... Laid back locals and regulars.... Gets very busy with a great mish mash of people....
