A fine pub, set amidst extensive grounds; including their own caravan site. Well known for the loving care with which the beer is tended. A similar philosophy is applied to the carefully prepared home made meals. Recent alterations have increased the size of the drinking areas, which are crammed with interesting curios; including many mementos of the Cobbold dynasty.
