This “attractive” sixteenth century inn is a very well-known Suffolk destination that fans say is “well worth the detour off the A12”, praising its “excellent” locally sourced food. It inspired uneven reviews this year though: even fans feel it’s “somewhat pricey for a meal en route” – and more critical souls “don’t understand why it’s so popular” given food they feel is “a bit mixed” and incidents of “poor” service.

Making use of “the well-researched best of Suffolk” ingredients, “the menu will please the local clientele as well as any passing gourmet”, say fans of this 16th-century inn (modernised after fire damage), and “make it a destination in this beautiful corner of the county”. Some regulars, though, remain sceptical about its performance: “nice room, enthusiastic owner, but food didn’t match expectations”.

Views divide on this 16th-century inn “attractively re-opened after a fire” a couple of years ago. For fans “Brendan and his team have nailed it” serving “adventurous” fare with “wit and professional charm”, but for foes the management can seem “overbearing” and the food “priced so as to leave you feeling fleeced”.

“After their disastrous fire so soon after opening, they’ve made an amazingly quick and confident return” at this “deservedly popular” gastropub, which has “reopened with an improved layout, and improved cooking!”
