This old coaching inn serves “great food” in the beamed dining room or elm bar, with open fires adding to the “busy, buzzy atmosphere”. Service can be “a little hectic” when “the pub is full of people having a great time” – but you can borrow a bike or a boat and make your escape along Constable’s peaceful and unspoilt River Stour.

“A proper pub with roaring fires, dogs and good beer on tap”, and where the food is “a notch above your average boozer”, whether you opt for the bar food or a more formal meal in the restaurant. Add in “comfortable” rooms and a “stunning, thoughtfully decorated” building and it’s “a great place for a long weekend”.

“Better than a pub, but with all the easy cosiness of being in the relaxed countryside pub that it actually is” – this “beautiful historic inn” at the heart of a picturesque village makes a good stop-off point on the Essex/Suffolk border.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
