This listed 500-year-old former guildhall with exposed beams is “a top choice in northern Suffolk” under Paul & Sarah Yaxley, who took over more than 10 years ago. There’s a clever mix of pub classics and more sophisticated dishes on the menu, and it’s “always good, especially for lunch”.

For 32 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).
