Had a table booked for 6pm...shown to our table which was sat in a gale due to the one way system in place and with our high chair going to be blocking the exit door. Asked to move and was moved to the next table. Drinks order was taken and drinks arrived. By 6:45pm still no one had come to take our food order. Numerous members of staff walked past our table on numerous occasions to take orders for other tables without even the slightest bit of acknowledgement. Paid for drinks and left. Very disappointed with the service.

Two visits to the parrot in a week to make the most of the dine out scheme, but no complaints from me. Both visits with groups of friends and can’t fault the food, social distancing measures in place and staff very helpful to do all they can. Will be returning again and hopeful that the warm strawberry bakewell will remain on the menu!!

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.
