Lunchtime stop en-route to Suffolk for the Latitude festival tomorrow. Quite busy - but prompt and very pleasant service. Was offered a taste of all the ales.

Early lunch on our way east. Very good food and service and an interesting selection of beers. Only a very small area for non-diners - but this is a good pit-stop close to the A12.

Impromptu stop early evening on the way East due to heavy traffic on the A12. Dozens of cars but the place was less than half full - very efficient food service and a reasonable choice. Good service. Very much a food pub but patio areas outside and a small drinking area inside with comfy leather armchairs - not being used.
