Beer served from the barrel. Mauldon's Silver Adder, Victoria's Earl Soham and Bombardier plus a couple of ciders.
Food good but can be expensive.
Barman needs to lighten up a bit.

Delightful pub. Do try the locally made pork pies!

I regularly visited this pub about 30 years ago when it was one of the first in the area to offer basket meals - sausages, scampi or chicken as I recollect. We went for an evening walk recently and dropped in for a drink. The beer we drank was from the Victoria brewery at Earl Soham - a few miles away. The pub has a bit of character, is very clean and is generally a nice place to sip a beer.

The menu took our eye, talking of local produce and home cooking. We were impressed enough to decide to visit again, this time to eat. I rang to book, cycling made me slightly unsure of our arrival time , so I hesitated while mentioning this to the landlord. His reaction was to say - "well do you want to book or not?". Slightly rude thought, but booked nevertheless. We arrived by bike (three of us and put the bikes in the beer garden at the rear of the pub. The landlord appeared immediately and asked us to move the pubs to the front of the pub next to the road where we were unable to see them, but anyone passing by would be able to. We didn't have locks, and the bikes were expensive, so we weren't keen. This didn't go down well with our host and he became quite agitated. Eventually we compromised, by now feeling perhaps we had made a poor choice of venue. Anyway, we went into the pub, the atmosphere relaxed a little and we went to our table. No one else was eating and there was only one other couple in the pub. The menu hinted at home cooking. What actually arrived though was a poor quality mass produced pasty with a presumably home made coleslaw that was unappetising. The chips may be chunky, I'd lay money on them being out of a catering pack though.

Overall although the venue is nice, the landlord isn't my idea of a convivial host and the food we had was about on par with KFC. Disappointing and we won't be going in again.

Have driven past this lovely little pub numerous times and finally got round to stopping on Sunday. It was everything a lovely country pub should be. Roaring fire, cosy, quirky - smashing on a day pouring with rain. Sorry don't do beer much (probably a bit of a misnoma due to the title of this website). But did do my favourite tipple (pinot grigiot) and the sandwiches looked smashing (yummy bread in great big doorstops) and chunky home cooked (not ghastly cardboard frozen jobs) chips.

There will be a beer festival again this year - and you betcha i will be there

Visited this pub 28th August for their Real Ale Festival. An excellent selection of beers;including Ecclesshall Shining Knight (4.5%); Ellgoods Mad Dog Bitter (4.4%); Robinsons Hartleys XB (4.0%) AND one that you'll never see again; Elgoods Mouse Hole (4.6%), this was brewed especially for the Peterborough Festival recently and one barrel was secured by Paul Boswell, the Landlord, for this event.
All the beers were beautifully served in sympathetic surroundings. 3rd Test from Trent Bridge on v small in garden so regular update of score!
This pub is recommended as the surroundings, service and quality of food and drink is very good.
