Adnam's Freewheel now being served alongside, Broadside, Bitter and Ghost Ship - now £4 a pint.
Good choice of food at reasonable prices.
The 'banging-shut' (every 30 seconds) from the door leading to the garden was very irritating - I just about 'held it' together!

Four hand-pumps all serving Adnams ales, including Fat Sprat and the excellent Mosaic Pale Ale (probably Adnams best ale).
Sadly, they come at an excellent price - for the landlord, just shy of four pounds a pint.
The small bar-counter makes it hard to get served - especially when blocked by the local clientele.

A great pub in a stunning location sadly let down by the attitude of the barman.

We have called into this pub on a number of occasions on the way home, but our last visit will be our last visit!

I arrived at the bar and waited to be served, some other customers joined me. The barman had to show some guests to their rooms as they were staying the night, so he went off. Next thing one of the people who was in the queue behind me went behind the bar and started serving himself and his mate. After a while he looked at me a bit embarrassed and said 'I think we just pushed in front of you, sorry.' He then asked me what I wanted and proceeded to serve me when the barman returned. One of the locals sat at the bar said to the barman that the Adnam's bitter that had been drawn for me looked a bit 'thin' and perhaps he should do something about it. The barman slopped some beer off the top of the glass and topped it up from the hand-pump. 'That will be fine now he said', well when I tried the beer it had a distinctive vinegary taste to it. So I told the barman, his response was 'what have you been eating, nothing wrong with that.' And that was it as far as he was concerned. The barrel ran out on the very next pint he tried to pull and so the barrel was changed, the local at the bar had a word with the person who changed the barrel about my pint it turned out. Because he came over with a new pint for myself and also apologised for what had happened.
Which was well done him but the attitude of the barman I found to be too cocky and as a result we will take our trade elsewhere to more appreciative pubs of which there are many.

Nice little picturesque pub tucked away down near the Suffolk marshes. Log fire and friendly service. Lots of locals. Adnams ales (three, couldn't see any guest beers) were in good condition but pricey for the location. 3.30 for a Gun Hill = London prices in rural Suffolk.
Agree with one of the comments below about the kitchen door being wide open. Unneccessary.
Menu looked good and reasonably priced, but didn't try the food so can't comment on the quality.

Charming building serving Adnams ales in good quality condition yet on every visit the kitchen door has been open and the inside smells of a combination of various cooking fats and oils.

Staff visibly smoking outside the kitchen door. My job is to merely steer the knowledgeable drinker to end of his quest and not to comment on food, but I have to say that an adjacent diner's cheese ploughman's looked like a Jigsaw.
i.e. an unassembled Cheese roll with salad.

Verdict. Good to use as a pit stop on a minsmere walk but turn up early and drink outside.Deserving of its GBG 2010 entry, but as a whole I'm perplexed to this pub's current rating
