On the spectacular Shotley peninsula bordered by the rivers Orwell and Stour, this traditional 17th-century country pub, now with new owners and a refurbished restaurant, offers a reasonably priced, traditional menu with plenty of choice. Typical starters include smoked mackerel pâté; or prawn and crayfish cocktail. Follow this with home-made lasagne; pan-seared lamb's liver and bacon; spinach, sweet potato and feta cheese pancake; or traditional ham, eggs and chips. There's a separate children's menu.
