We stopped for coffee. Wow what a place, went looking for the ladies & looked into open doors. Tables were set beautifully for a function. The smell of woodsmoke from the open fire was gorgeous. Comfy leather seating. A lot of redecorating happening at the moment here, but minimal disturbance. The menus we viewed were awesome for Christmas & new... More

This is a beautiful old timber framed hotel with a fabulous large beamed dining room. A bit dated but hey it's old! We arrived towards the end of lunch service but it wasn't a problem and we never felt rushed. Sunday lunch was very good with plenty of choice including fish. The roast was great, well cooked and very tasty.... More

We had a good meal that was enjoyed by most. It was a mix between self service and table service. Placing your orders at the bar collecting your own cutlery then having it delivered by waitress. One main meal was disappointing stodgy risotto.

My Husband and I stayed in Long Melford in January and had lunch here on the recommendation of a friend who stays here every year and we weren't disappointed. The food was really nice in a lovely quaint oldey worldly pub with a massive fire which wasn't lit when we were in but I'm sure makes it really cosy. We... More

From outside this looked like a lovely place to eat and as it was a lovely evening took the opportunity to eat in the beer garden. Ordered a sharing platter as a starter. After a long wait it arrived with no onion rings. Told waiter who just laughed and half heartedly apologised. After what felt like an eternity and after... More

The steak and ribs were good but they hadn't got any fajitas which two of us wanted but considering it was being staffed by two young lads and a lady they did a good job and the ice cream and Bakewell tart were lovely.
