Meal was Belly Pork, the meat was very stringy,few vegetables and expensive. Service was pleasant but slow. The whole place isa bit tatty and in need of a refurb to justify the pricey drinks and food..

Proper pub, no carpet and no fancy decorations; but the beer is always good. I particularly like their themed food nights. The staff are always very helpful and nothing is to much trouble.

A lovely little pub restaurant near the station in Woodbridge. Nice atmosphere and staff are very friendly. Pints are a little on the pricy side, but, par for the area. A little updating would go a long way. But all in all a nice place...More
