A bit off the beaten track and found along the South Suffolk Cycle route, you'll find an oasis of great beer found in a traditional styled Suffolk freehouse. Recently taken under the wing of on-site unique microbrewery, Little Earth Project, they offer a mix of their own mixed fermentation wild beers as well as a mix of real ale & craft beer from independent British producers from local favourites Adnams & Crouch Vale to Burnt Mill, Duration & Ampersand. With knowledgeable staff to match the ever changing range of both cask and keg beers.
Beer & Cider festivals, as well as the annual Eddyfest (August BH) are usual highlights in the pub events calendar.
Well off the beaten track in very rural countryside, a really traditional Suffolk free house, hard to find but well worth seeking out. Being run by former CAMRA local-POTY winners Jane & Mike Binyon (23 years experience). With knowledgeable staff to match the ever changing range of both cask and keg beers. Real ale focus is now on East Anglian breweries mostly within a 50 mile radius of the pub. Two pub beer festivals and the annual Eddyfest (August BH) are highlights in the pub events calendar. New Folk Festival starting 20th June 2020 plus the annual Cider Festival (in Oct).
The food is traditional and homemade with almost all dishes being gluten-free. Also two small holiday cottages and a campsite are within the grounds. Reasonably priced home prepared food uses mainly locally sourced and home grown and organic ingredients.
The pub is also the brewery tap of the Little Earth Project, located behind the pub. Noted for brewing quirky and interesting sours, wild beers, and cask aged beers. Exciting times ahead as they hone their offering of excellent British and European brews, organic and local soft drinks.

Splendid traditional two bar pub bedecked with old enamel advertising signs. A large collection of traditional pub games is to be found in the bar. Regular barbecues, car and motorcycle rallies in summer. Consistently high quality beer has earned this pub a long run in the GBG, with the Abbot coming direct from the cellar.…
