This is a pleasant pub in an attractive village and is now the only one remaining nearby now that The Swan has been turned in to a private house. There is some outside seating in the courtyard at the front as well as an enclosed beer garden at the rear that had a hen wandering around in amongst the tables.

Inside it consists of three rooms, although these are just partitioned off from one another rather than being entirely separate. The main bar in the middle has a tiled floor and a stone chimney breast at one end complete with an oversized clock hung above it and a large cut-out of a cat sat in the hearth. A small snug to the right had a wood floor with a few chunky wooden tables, some exposed stone wall and a wood burning stove. The walls were white plasterwork with black wooden detailing. There was some blue bench seating in the bay window and a couple of old black and white photo’s on the walls.

To the left was a room more geared up for dining with whitewashed stone walls and a vaulted ceiling. Besides the aforementioned garden there was also a covered courtyard area complete with a plasma screen at one end. The barmaid was friendly and helpful, although the waitress who brought the food a little less so.

Food wise, the menu offered a good selection of pub grub dishes including Ham Egg & Chips, Fish & Chips and a Burger as well as a few more adventurous options with most of the main courses being somewhere around the £10 mark and a selection of tapas dishes. My Sea Bass Fillet on a bed of Thai noodles and vegetables was one of the more expensive options at £14.50 but was a pleasant enough dish. If I were being critical I’d say that it could perhaps have been both a little tastier and a more generous portion but nonetheless I would be happy to return and try something else.

Beers on tap were Spitfire, Potton’s Lion Pale Ale, Adnams Southwold and Hopping Mad Brainstorm. Ciders were Thatcher’s Gold and Weston’s Family Reserve which makes a change from the usual rubbish around these parts.
