* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

Owned by local brewer Adnams, this fifteenth-century tavern is well-served by landlord Garry Cook’s kitchen skills, while a “real highlight” is the rare-breed pork raised by his wife Teresa on “the smallholding that provides much of the produce”. It’s a five-minute walk from Snape Maltings, which makes it ideal for a pre-concert meal – but you’ll need to book.

This 15th-century smugglers’ tavern “in a delightful Suffolk village” has a “high standard of cooking”, thanks to landlord-chef Garry Cook and his wife Teresa, whose smallholding produces vegetables and meat for the kitchen, including prize-winning rare-breed pork. “Take in the summer air here, or snuggle by the open fire on a cold winter’s day”.

“Who would have thought, in an out-of-the-way spot such as this, that such a high standard of cooking can be achieved?” – but, defying expectations, “the chef knows his onions” at this 15th-century smugglers’ inn, and “they seem to pride themselves on sourcing as much local produce” as possible (down to the on-site pigs).

A “cosy”, 15th-century smugglers’ inn, “particularly on a winter’s night”, when “you can sit on huge high-backed settles around an open fire”; the food is “mainly meat-based”, but no less “excellent” for that – and there’s a particular shout-out for the “porky platter” (the pigs being reared on site).
