Discovered this traditional thatched village pub after passing the nearby Plough, where at 5.30 pm on a summer Wednesday afternoon the staff, drinking in the beer garden, watched us park before telling us they did not open until 6pm.

Feeling miffed, drove on and saw the sign for the Sorrel Horse and decided to give it a go. A great ( genuine) welcome, a bit of chat with the friendly locals, with Wherry at £3.30 on gravity, great tasting and enjoyed in the sunny front garden. Bliss.

Turns out this pub was to be closed down but the village rallied round to form their own PubCo. Seems they've got it right. Went back a couple of days later to enjoy extremely good reasonably priced eats. Well worth seeking out, it approaches your vision of the ideal pub of your dreams. Date of visit 24/7/14

Recent visit proved dissapointing. Of the several beers on offer all were from Greene King (boring) except for Woodfordes Wherry which was approaching vinegar. The fish & chips were OK but rather small portions.

This is a gorgeous pub set in an equally nice village. The beer is gravity fed and kept well. I was drinking Woodforde’s Wherry but there was the usual descent Adnams amongst others on offer too. The garden at the front soaks up the sun and the landlord is most accommodating. We were also lucky enough to get in a few games of bar billiards too. I look forward to my return.

A delightful little village pub - unpretentious and welcoming with the incumbents genuinely (self) interested in providing good value food and drink for their customers. The beer (Woodfordes Wherry or Adnams Bitter on gravity) was heaven (the first drop to score 5/5 for me this year) and the Suffolk Ham on wholemeal was perfect.
I was just a walker en route but we all need to support such establishments as they are what a good village pub is all about.

Had a meal here in march 2010, really excellent, and the beer was very good too. The people were very welcoming and the real fire was appreciated on a cold day. A pub that's worth going out of your way for!
