We found this little gem of a pub on a visit to Aldeburgh and Thorpeness where all the pubs were very busy. Upon arrival we were made welcome by the excellent staff. We chose to sit inside as it was very windy. Homely atmosphere and discreet background music. We enjoyed a drink of draught Adnams Ghostship and a glass of excellent New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. We both chose the 6oz burger with smoked bacon and cheese, which was freshly cooked and delicious. The young staff were attentive and checked with us that our meals were to our liking. My wife and I also enjoyed browsing some of the books on display. All in all a very good experience in a very well run pub/restaurant. Well done to the management and staff!

Came to the pub due to a last minute change in lunch options. Car park had space, outside seating available and socially distanced. Menu was clear and quite exciting. Staff attentive and friendly.

After ordering drinks and food we sat outside, observing that inside the pub; there was a one way system in place with clear signage.

When food arrived, we were not disappointed: all wonderful grub. Dessert menu looked pretty damn good too but we were full.

Under the Eat Out to Help Out scheme, the bill was a bargain. Will come again.

We came here for lunch and enjoyed it so much we came back for dinner the next night. We were told on arrival they were very busy yet the food came out in good time and was well cooked and delicious. The staff looked after us and were nice and chatty.

This is a great place. The food was stunning and great value. What made the visit extra special we’re the extraordinary staff. They were without exception superb. Friendly , professional , polite and knowledgable. The COVID-19 plans they have in place are easy to understand and clearly displayed. This is everything you want in a Country English Pub . GREAT FOOD - AMAZING SERVICE AND SUPERB VALUE FOR MONEY.
