About The Parrot

PLEASE NOTE DUE TO NEW TABLE RESTRICTIONS IN PLACE DUE TO COVID19 WE CAN NOT ALLOW DOGS INSIDE AT THIS TIME.

WE ARE LIMITED TO A MAXIMUM OF 6 PEOPLE ON A TABLE INSIDE.

PLEASE CALL US TO RESERVE A TABLE IN OUR GARDEN.

Dating back to the 16th Century, The Parrot certainly has a lot of history. With its exposed solid oak beams, open fire, wonky walls and low ceilings, it oozes charm and character.

Cosy up in the snug and bar and warm up by the log fire during the colder months or find a bench in the private walled garden for a game of boules on one of the pistes in the beer garden.

The Parrot is the perfect place for a romantic meal tucked away from everybody but equally as tempting for a family celebration.

With a menu consisting of the best that Suffolk has to offer, with the changing seasons you will find that there is something for everybody's taste. The restaurant is bright and airy with decor boasting antique clocks and a wooden floor.

On the bar you will find the best local ales from just up the road in Southwold. Not only do Adnams offer great ales but also awards winning spirits that compliment The Parrot's ever-growing list of gins, rums, whiskeys and vodkas. If wine is more your thing then order from the eclectic selection on the wine menu.

The Parrot boasts a walled garden, which has a sizeable gazebo in which private parties for up to 40 people can be catered for during the summer.

There is a large car park to the rear and the pub is dog-friendly too - just make sure you call ahead to let them know that are bringing your four-legged friend.

We went for the festive menu, which was excellent, but they have great food and service at all times of the year.

Very good Sunday roast during difficult covid 19 situation and pub was clean and well set up for social distancing and transmission prevention.

It was a quiet Covid night but that was fine as we wanted some distance. Food and service were excellent. The Parrot never disappoints.

The service was so warm and welcoming especially as I’d muddled up the booking arriving some 8 days early! Steak and lamb were outstanding and service throughout attentive but not smothering. Great attention to Covid safety.

Three of us had a superb lunch. We all chose from the festive menu which we thought was very good value for money. Highly recommend the tomato and red pepper soup - delicious! Two had the roast turkey and one salmon, all were delicious and well presented. Desserts were great too! Highly recommend going.

Another excellent meal at The Parrot. The one star docked from atmosphere was down to Covid-19 rather than the experience itself. Good value too.

Staff were friendly and welcoming however we were squeezed into a small spot for two (with our knees touching the whole evening) despite 2 x 4 person tables being free for the entire time we were there - it would have made more sense to be a walk in rather than book a few weeks in advance. My meal was disappointing - it was bland, no real flavour from any of the elements on the dish, yet my husband's steak was tasty and the peppercorn sauce was delicious.
