Nice, friendly pub just down the road from a very good campsite. The stillaged beers were both from Woodfordes - Wherry and Bure Gold on this occasion. The food looked good, but I didn't get to try on this occasion. I'll be back again soon.

A reservation for a party of approx. twenty guests was made several months ago and a phone call was made from the pub well in advance to confirm the booking. However, within days of the booked date we were informed that due to kitchen refurbishment they could not cater for our group leaving very little time to find an alternative as the date for the gathering had been published in our club journal. Far more notice should have been given and my suggestion that should we book at The Sorrel Horse in the future a substantial discount would be offered by way of compensation fell on deaf ears.

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.
