Good Hotel Guide Review
Geed up with a sophisticated steer, this inn in a former Victorian pub sits in a rural village near Newmarket by a medieval packhorse bridge. Beyond a glassed-in corridor lie a bar and smart dining areas, with stripped floorboards and wooden tables; outside, a sun-filled garden offers alfresco dining. Your dog-friendly bedroom might have a claw-foot or stone bath, or a view over the village green. Coach house rooms have under-floor heating and open on to a terrace. The well-regarded restaurant uses local vegetables, meats and cheeses for its Modern menus and Sunday roasts. Breakfast brings a Full Suffolk or vegetarian. On race days expect to jockey for position at the bar for a pint of Woodforde’s Wherry.
