Good Hotel Guide Review
A ‘comfortable, welcoming’ spot in a market town close to the Suffolk coast, this popular 16th-century coaching inn now offers ‘cool’, modern interiors alongside traditional hospitality. The wooden sailing skiff suspended above the bar is a nod to the area’s nautical heritage. ‘Excellent food’, served in the restaurant, makes the most of Suffolk’s seasonal larder with such dishes as tuna marinated in rosemary and garlic, tomato ragout, rosemary roast potatoes; diners spill out on to the large terrace in warmer weather. Upstairs, ‘relaxing bedrooms’ are swathed in soothing, natural tones; in each, goose-down pillows, underfloor heating, top-quality toiletries. Biscuits, piles of books and local magazines, are a nice touch. ‘Particularly good service.’
