Carefully refurbished old village pub with up-to-date colourful furnishings, first class food, kind service and prettily planted garden

Reopened after a three-year closure, this 16th-c village pub - recorded as one of the oldest buildings in the village - has been carefully and thoughtfully restored and refurbished, blending modern décor with some fine original features. Walk through the main door to an area with very high-backed floral as well as purple leather armchairs in front of an open fire; this leads into the bar with black leather stools against the counter (there are more by a couple of high tables), plush button-back bucket seats and candy-striped wall seats around a few tables on pale wood flooring and blue leather chesterfield sofas. The raftered dining room gives 90-degree views through huge glass windows of the garden and is furnished with colourful upholstered dining chairs, marble-topped tables and a long, high-backed banquette that separates this from a ?chef's table' area by the open kitchen; there's also a private dining room that seats up to 14 people. A small beamed room with stylish modern flower arrangements (one of the owners is a renowned florist) has blue, purple and pink plush stools and cushioned wall seating. A fine range of drinks includes Adnams Ghost Ship and Southwold, Nethergate Suffolk County, Timothy Taylors Boltmaker and Landlord and Woodfordes Wherry on handpump, 16 wines by the glass (several wines on the list are produced locally), cocktails, 21 gins, farm cider and early morning coffee and afternoon tea; background music. The terrace has seats under parasols and stools by long rustic tables; this spills into the beautifully planted garden with walkways, which in turn extends in a meadow with a safely fenced area for children to run around.
