Pint of beer on a bar

Open all year

The locals may know it as The Low House but this unspoilt, thatched ,16th-century alehouse behind All Saints Church is a rare Suffolk gem that oozes charm and character. Previously owned by the Adnams brewery, it became a free house under new owners in May 2018. Tip-top ales such as Earl Soham Victoria and Green Jack Golden Best are served straight from the barrel in the original taproom – this is one of the few UK pubs not to have a bar. Typical dishes are creamy garlic and Stilton chestnut mushrooms on toasted sourdough, followed by beef bourguignon with celeriac mash and vegetables. The pub holds seasonal beer festivals in the large garden.
