Officially reopened from Dec 2011 on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. Evenings only.
Current owners have refurbished this pub building using their green and environmentally friendly values. A cosy, traditional style 2-room pub with wood burner and wood fired range. Gravity dispensed beers from local brewers served through a tap-room door with no bar counter (the previous one was long removed some time ago). They also offer a range of Fairtrade, organic & local (Adnams) spirits. Bar snacks. Occasional live music (monthly), piano and various games including bar billiards, darts, crib & board games. Horse & trap rides often available in summer.
The adjacent camp-site is also focused on green issues - renewable energy, recycling & appreciating the environment. The campsite has no electricity - just solar lighting and basic facilities. Yurts were handmade from locally sourced wood. The site is very natural - with pathways through trees and wildflowers, secluded units, ducks & hens wandering freely and a communal area.
Sweffling is part of the Swefling parish
Local licensing authority for Sweffling is Suffolk Coastal
