This large pub overlooks the marshes and river Waveney. Convenient for river users, railway travellers and ramblers. The comfortable lounge and dining area leads though to the garden room restaurant which has a good reputation and uses local produce (booking advised). An open fireplace separates the lounge and public bar. A converted barn in the attractive grounds is used for regular musical events featuring local artistes and occasional beer festivals. Guest beers are sourced from local micros.

Understood to be undergoing renovation, having been taken under the control of the Somerleyton Estate. As far as can be ascertained, the bar remains open, but if you can clarify please let us know.
