Good Hotel Guide Review

In the Stour valley, close to the Essex border, Richard Sunderland’s pub-with-rooms stands in the ‘village centre, surrounded by landscaped gardens, with views over lovely countryside’. Accommodation is in a separate, purpose-built block ‘designed to match the Suffolk vernacular’. Guide inspectors’ ground-floor room had French windows on to a private terrace, ‘with a tall hedge, a paved area, shrubs and plants, a garden path right by the window – we were soon on nodding terms with the gardener’. Standard rooms have a walk-in shower, deluxe rooms a bath and separate shower. In the open bar and dining room, ‘furnished with rustic-style chairs and tables’, there is ‘a glass-fronted wine “shop” where bottles can be bought for dinner or to take’. The food receives mixed reviews. Trusted readers enjoyed ‘delicious grilled half lobster and dressed crab’. Our inspectors’ watercress and asparagus soup, and roasted asparagus with crisp poached egg and hollandaise, were ‘very good’; a courgette linguine and an Eton mess were less successful. The wine list was ‘a delight, surprisingly reasonable’. Breakfast brings home-made jams and muesli, ‘excellent fresh orange juice’. (David Bartley, Michael Gwinnell, and others)

Guest comments

'A pleasant stay. Staff were helpful. Our bedroom, set in a lovely garden, was comfortable, and breakfast was excellent, better than dinner. This is one of Suffolk's oldest pubs, recently renovated. In the centre of the village, it has lovely views. ' - JT - May, 2018
'Difficult to fault- except for the noise in the dining room on Saturday night. The staff were tremendous. The ground-floor room was great in all respects. ' - David Bartley - September, 2016
'The welcome was delightful. Our room was beautifully warm, spacious and with a smart bathroom. . The restaurant was full of character. The food was modern and well presented. The bonus was the wine list. Some amazing wines at equally amazing prices - markup very low.. ' - Colin Fielder - February, 2015
