On the spectacular Shotley peninsula bordered by the rivers Orwell and Stour, this traditional 17th-century country pub, now with new owners, offers a reasonably priced, traditional menu with plenty of choice, and food is served throughout the day . Typical starters include home-made soup, prawn cocktail or garlic mushrooms. Follow this with home-made lasagne; pie of the day; sausage and mash; or ham, eggs and chips. There’s a separate children's menu.
