After having to travel to Colchester hospital for a scan from Norwich and having to starve for 12 hours we stopped here on way home anticipating a lovely meal of lasagne and chips; the menu was well presented and quite expensive. Couldn’t have been more disappointed. The lasagne

Thank you for your review. My advice, if I may give it, is that if you are ever served dog food or food resembling it in a restaurant or a pub then you should refuse it, certainly not pay for it. We are by no means perfect, but frankly this kind of review is insulting to what we do and I feel unnecessary. We serve many portions of our homemade lasagne averaging over 100 per week, it is incredibly rare to have a complaint about it being sub standard or not to taste, if however we do make a mistake (and lets face it we all do) we are more than happy to exchange or refund as appropriate. I read that you were also revolted by our Homemade Frozen Coffee and Tia Maria Mousse (a frozen coffee liquor mousse served in a coffee cup dusted with coco powder, a gluten free option) Normally favored for its silky smooth texture and rich indulgent flavors. I have been quite genuinely asked on many occasions for the recipe for this dessert, probably more than any other. Unfortunately as your dissatisfaction wasn't raised at the time I was unable to look into the points made. We did sell 30 portions of this batch without any other negative feed back. Thank you for making us aware of service issues on another table. We have made a training point of this issue. Some of our staff are young and inexperienced although very keen and hard working, I am sure they will take these comments on board. Plainly this was an unacceptable solution to the problem. I am sorry to hear that you had had a difficult day. I guess that many of our customers are dealing with all kinds of personal battles, as we are unaware of them we are unable to tailor our service or food to suit them. We welcome comments that can help us shape our business to our guests preferences. We particularly value verbal comment at the time of service to enable us to act quickly to find a resolve, no fuss. We also offer comment cards that facilitate anonymous feed back quickly. I note from your review history that you are a more critical judge when dining out and seem to prefer this medium to express your views which is of course your personal choice. Personally I find that a quiet word at the time goes a long way and reaps reward and favor. Thanks again.

Went here for my dads 70th Birthday celebrations. Amazing food, staff and welcome. Made it extra special with how attentive the staff were. We were allowed to decorate with balloons etc and they brought out the cake after the main course. Excellent service, excellent food,

Gosh how this place has changed in that time. From the minute we stepped through the door we received friendly attentive service. The menu was extensive and the food was very tasty. Served quickly. Pub has been extended to incorporate accommodation and a much larger restaurant.

Had a wonderful time here. The food was superb and the beer wonderful. It has a great selection of beers. The interior is typical Suffolk timber frame and beautifully renovated, combining modern aspects with very old. The service was also good and very friendly.

I'm sorry we don't allow dogs inside. We do however welcome well behaved dogs out side. The Four Horse Shoes down the road is dog friendly.
