The curious jigsaw that is an old country cottage and a Georgian farmhouse fit together seamlessly here, resulting in an appealing country pub set amidst the cornfields of deepest Suffolk. With a wealth of beams, log-burners and two contrasting areas in which to relax, indulge in a glass of Suffolk-brewed beer and find your bearings on an invigorating menu that caters for both grazers and gastronomes. With a commitment to local produce, distinguished dishes from the carte menu may include slow-cooked belly of pork; seared king scallops or noisettes of venison, with bread and butter pudding a final flourish.
