A popular two roomed pub which offers good food. There is a large beer garden and the pub has an annual beer festival on Whitsun bank holiday weekend.
The proprietors are passionate about fresh ingredients and source produce locally wherever possible, including an exciting range of wines from Giffords Hall Vineyards in Hartest.
The pub has a rear courtyard dining area with beautiful lawns; see the pub website for pictures and up to date menus.
Watch out for "Kentwellians" during the Tudor recreations at Kentwell Hall, who can often be found in the back bar on summer evenings.
On March 30th, the EADT reported that the pub, alongside the Lavenham Greyhound (operated by the same company) had suddenly closed. Pub owners Greene King are seeking new operators to reopen and run the pub.
