Been a while since we'd been here. The Adnam's beer is still great, fine choice of great ales. The real surprise for us was the food. A good choice of really tasty meals, much better than your average "pub grub". We were all very impressed.

I visited as part of a group of ten recently. Food bookings not accepted but we 'phoned in advance to tell them that a large group would be visiting for a meal. We were told that it wouldn't be a problem and they were true to their word. Orders were taken, and served quickly and efficiently - a well run... More

Plates always cold so food did not stay warm for long, spinach with most dishes, personally i didnt think food was very good and quite dear for specials that were... More

We were on a Suffolk coastal walk and, as my friend recalled this historic pub from previous visits, we decided to stop here on a bitterly cold day to have a pint and some soup. The Eel is now part of the Adnam's pub chain and suitably polished. A nice variety of Adnams ales though no guest beers - which... More

Stayed here for just one night, wished it had been more. The room was beautifully decorated and extremely clean. Had tea and coffee making facilities which was lovely. Great place to stay too if you are going to RSPB Minsmere as it's just up the road.

We were spending a couple of days in and around Minsmere. We have driven past The Eels Foot Inn many times and it always looked inviting. We only stayed one night but we will be back. A really traditional pub with a good selection of beers, excellent evening meal and very good breakfast. The room was spacious and very comfortable... More

Went there for Sunday lunch at three o'clock, when other pubs in the area had closed off lunch. They are amazing at turning out so many meals (serving from 12pm to 9pm) quickly and of high quality from an extensive menu. Four of us had cod with hand cut fries, house made tartare sauce, and peas. Very enjoyable.
