We visit here fairly regularly as we have family who live very close. An excellent lunch for my husband's birthday the other day - tasty food, well kept beer and friendly staff - perfect!

Lots of rooms, good range of real ales and ciders and nearly always a dark ale. Friendly staff and friendly locals. You can't help but talk to people. Always been a great venue for acoustic music. Headquarters of Rumburgh Morris and Old Glory Molly. It's pub grub but plenty of it. The fish is always good.

We were staying down the road for a family week end away and we're recommended to eat here. Glad we did so. Suggest you book as they were very busy on a Sunday lunchtime. Beers and ciders brilliant; food was good simple fare. Service was friendly and efficient. Very good indeed.

Good choice of local beers and cider. Dogs allowed, locals and staff friendly. Menu limited, no separate children's list. Food was hot. Wouldn't eat here again, but for a drink definitely worth a return visit.

We called in on speck and found a quaint busy pub. There are quite a few rooms,all cosy with people having meals. Although it was busy we got served straight away and our food arrived in no time. The food was good and staff very friendly.

Thank Teenzy
