Bustling 18th-c cottage pub with a warming log fire, hearty food and bedrooms
Good Pub Guide Recommended
This never disappoints,' says one reader with much enthusiasm and it's the sort of place that once found, you'll keep returning to; it's very much the hub of the community and particularly well run by the friendly, helpful landlord and his courteous staff. The low-ceilinged rooms have a cosy, chatty atmosphere and traditional furnishings, with book-room-red walls, floral curtains, bare boards, navy carpeting, cosy warm fires and an unusual walk-through fireplace. A higgledy-piggledy mix of chairs ranges from high-backed pews to little cushioned armchairs spaced around a good variety of closely arranged tables, mostly big, some stripped. The small red-tiled room on the right has two small tables. Three changing beers, including Adnams Broadside and Southwold and Woodfordes Wherry, are tapped straight from casks racked up behind the bar; TV, disabled access. Tables on the terrace have views over the surrounding tranquil countryside. Our readers love staying overnight here and the breakfasts are excellent.
