We loved our lunch experience Booking was easy, we were given a table as requested in the window. Nice, efficient welcome and acknowledgement of a birthday. Menu varied and interesting the food we chose was perfect. Tasty, fresh and generous with lovely wine. The service a perfect blend of professional yet friendly led by a very commendable front of house lady. All spotlessly clean, busy with a good atmosphere. Fabulous 100% (which is very unusual these days).

Thoroughly enjoyable with excellent service. The only comment worthy of note is the absence of either a bread roll or perhaps a slice of granary bread with the platters on offer.

Warmly welcomed and all staff were very attentive throughout. Fantastic food - possibly the best restaurant experience I've ever had. Well done on having alcohol-free beer and for charging just a couple of quid for it. Thanks for really lovely lunch. We'll be back in August ☺

great scallop starter, perfectly cooked succulent scallops and crispy parma ham. main courses very disappointing, dry , coarse over cooked sea trout with no flavour and oddly paired with carrot puree which added nothing. green veg were good. my husband a veteran FnC eater, said his haddock probably had the least flavour he had ever tasted. When asked by both the waiter and waitress how was our meal and having told them of our disappointment, they just shrugged it off, as if it were of no meaning to them.

We chose the big platter with oysters and, my word, it is a BIG platter; however, we were offered a 'doggy bag' to take home the leftovers. Front of House Staff were exceptional as was the food and the whole lunch experience. Well worth the 2 hour trip from Suffolk!
