Fine dining pub with a smart, contemporary interior

AA Pick of the Pubs
Open all year
Sitting opposite the village pond and right next to the church, this imposing 18th-century pub is an award-winning destination, attracting locals, walkers and cyclists alike. A clean, crisp look defines the interior, while the laid-back bar, restaurant atrium, enclosed courtyard and two beer gardens are all pleasant places to settle down with the modern British menus. In the bar and restaurant, expect East Anglian ales such as Adnams Southwold Bitter accompanying fresh fish brought in from Norfolk and plenty of other produce sourced locally. There’s lots of choice on the menus – from bar snacks such as venison croquettes with pickled red cabbage and brown sauce, to main courses of Toulouse sausages with root vegetable and lentil ragù; or braised shoulder of lamb with roast potatoes and seasonal veg. Look out for ‘bin end’ wine deals and the popular themed food nights that take place throughout the year.
