12:40 We came to Snape to visit the Crown but noticed this pub round the corner so came here first. Busy with diners, took an age to get served as the lady at the bar had a complex order involving menu variations and five assorted soft drinks. That said the settles were superb and sitting in the little snug was very pleasant.
Adnams - Ghost Ship4.50ExcellentWithout a doubt Adnams best regular beer.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Snape, Suffolk, IP17 1SA.

L shaped pub. Main room contains the bar with a further room in the L of the building. A doorway to the right of the bar counter leads to a small snug area with built in seating. The main bar is beamed and has a large fireplace with alcove seating either side. The bar back is of indeterminate age but has unusual wooden columns supporting the shelving. However the gems of the pub are four settles, one of which is exceptionally fine being curved with a drop in height to fit the window, a defined waist and a flared base. Food is important but they do get early doors drinkers when the pub opens for the evening session at 18:00.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 3 different beers and tried 1 of them.
