The White Horse was Suffolk CAMRA Pub of the Year 2015, and East Anglia Pub of the Year 2015.
The current owners have focused on green issues - renewable energy, recycling, local suppliers, sustainable living & appreciating the environment. Their adjacent campsite business - since summer 2009 (part of which was formerly used as the pub garden) is now open from May to October and is now called Alde Garden (see www.aldegarden.co.uk) and offers a variety of camping options. The pub is a very cosy, traditional two-room pub, and is warmed by a wood-burner and wood-fired range. Gravity dispensed beers from local brewers are served through a taproom door. A range of Fairtrade, organic, and local Adnams spirits is also available, and bar snacks are served. Hot snacks are heated using the wood fired range. Some excellent non alcoholic cocktails (mocktails) are also available. There's live music twice monthly on Saturdays. There is a piano, and various pub games are offered including bar billiards, darts, crib and board games. Horse & trap rides are available in summer.
