Restaurant was full as they run a special deal on Wed evenings. Room nice and spacious and they upgraded me to larger room. very comfy bed. One area to improve is... More

A delight to stay in a hotel that is traditional and British in look and decoration versus those chains where you could be anywhere in the world. It's a 20 min walk from the Southwold- it's not actually in Southwold but the two villages are only disconnected by a bridge and it was very quiet. We stayed in both nights... More

We were a group of 9 dining on New Year Bank Holiday. The food and service was excellent and all were satisfied with their meal. Three of us had steak, which was cooked exactly as ordered and the accompaniments of mushrooms, tomato, peas, chips etc were delicious also. A good value meal.

A very warm welcome with friendly staff and management. The food was good and plentiful and the ambience is very relaxing and cosy. The place is buzzing, but not crowded and a delightful find.

This was our 4th visit here in the past year, conveniently it's within walking distance of where we stay. Accommodating staff & lovely food. Disappointed that the menu was the same as our last visit but that's a small criticism. Will definitely come again.

We were 4 adults and a toddler visiting at lunchtime. Scampi and chips for £5 was excellent value. The sandwiches came with chips and coleslaw and were very tasty. The children's menu seemed expensive in contrast but we just had an extra plate and she shared our meal. Service quick and friendly. Recommended.

Thanks for your review, dont forget the childrens meal also includes a colouring pad and crayons and a drink as well - perhaps its not as expensive as you thought! However I am very pleased that you enjoyed your meal and thanks for coming to see us. All the best David More

Dinner with friends, fish and chips for most of us as we fancied a lighter meal. Warm rolls to start which we lovely. Great to see that they have realised that not everyone drinks pale ale. Great toasted porter in bottles for those of us who enjoy darker beers. Large cod and chips arrived, cooked just right, chunky chips, mushy... More
