Architectural evidence survives to prove that this now converted village inn was built as a farmhouse around 1600. Set back from the road beyond a half-moon-shaped front garden, smart and cosy rooms lead off from the heftily-beamed bar, where a copper-topped servery dispenses Suffolk ales, and a huge inglenook combats the winter chills. The work of local artists looks down on dining tables at which representative starters might include chargrilled king prawn kebabs; and smoked bacon and parmesan arancini; and mains may well take in free-range, corn-fed chicken breast with chorizo gnocchi; and paupiette of lemon sole with oak-smoked salmon. On a fine day the rear garden is a popular place to be.
