|Returned to this pub yesterday evening, after finding it closed during the afternoon. As with many local pubs, I had expected it would be closed. But thought I'd try just in case. So it was my last port of call in Suffolk and also turned out to be the best. It most likely remains the hub of the local community as it is half post office and half pub. As you walk in the door, turn left to buy your stamps or turn right to buy your ale. The landlord is clearly very enthusiastic about real ale and stocks many local beers from microreweries. There are many pumpclips around the walls. Only 2 ales were on during my visit - Green Jack Summer Dream & Mauldons Christie's Golden Ale. I'm not a great fan of golden beers. But the Summer Dream was good. Good to see this sort of pub still alive and kicking and apparently they have just won a local CAMRA award.|

|Have to agree with Themarkster... this really is the centre of the community, doubling up as the post office and village stores. There was a very warm welcome from the landlord and landlady and the beer range and quality was good - our visit did coincided with a beer festival though. The pub was packed and really met the needs of everyone with a wide range of people in. There is a small games room at the back with pool, darts and scaletrix. |

|A real community pub with a shop and post office off to one side. Its pleasant enough and they do keep their ale well. They also have very good beer festivals through the year with some cracking ales.|

|Good pub for a quick lunch and a nice pint. The last 2 times I have stopped they had 4 real ales and they were all fresh.|

|Called into this Pub a few weeks ago, at first thought I had made a mistake, stepped through the door and saw tins of beans, bread and the like, instead of beer pumps, my mistake this really is a community Pub, it has the village grocer's shop adjoined, not a big Pub but more space than appears at first, with a pool table in a separate room,|
seemed a really friendly pub and I want to go back again when I have a driver and try some of the three or four real ales they offer, but the price they charged for a pint of Lime & Soda clearly showed that they where not ripping people off (Less than 50p)!
