Wonderful choice of changing real ales in a well run town pub; garden

A beer lover's dream and packed with cheerful customers, this well run pub stocks a huge range of up to 18 real ales from around the country on handpump or tapped from the cask. There might be Adnams Southwold, Crouch Vale Brewers Gold and Yakima Gold plus Fullers London Pride, Mighty Oak Oscar Wilde, Oakham Citra, Sharps Doom Bar, Titanic Plum Porter, Woodfordes Wherry and ales from local breweries such as Bishop Nick, Earl Soham, Grain and Green Jack. They also stock quite a few belgian bottled beers, farm cider and seven wines by the glass. The bars have a mix of café chairs and stools, unpadded wall benches and cushioned seats around cast-iron and wooden pub tables, bare floorboards and lots of enamel brewery signs and posters; board games and shove-ha'penny. There's also a spacious back conservatory and several picnic-sets on the terrace and lawn. Very little nearby parking. Well behaved dogs are welcome but they must be kept on a lead.
