Somerleyton Duke's Head

MONDAY 12TH APRIL - SUNDAY 16TH MAY

On reflection, we have decided the entirely unpredictable nature of 'outdoor only' hospitality is completely incompatible with the way we work. Without investing huge sums in marquees, heating & a decent WiFi connection, we would rather not spend the next four weeks offering you a watered down version of what we do.

Naturally, if a heatwave hits North Suffolk in the next four weeks, we will be back like a flash, so do keep an eye on the website & social media for updates.

MONDAY 17TH MAY - SATURDAY 17TH JULY

We cannot wait to properly open our doors once again. Please see below for further details of our opening times, but do note that our last food service day will be Sunday 11th July, leaving us with a very short, but sweet 8 weeks for you to dine with us once again.

Our diary is already filling up with bookings, especially Sunday lunch so do drop us an email or leave us a voicemail to secure your spots!

Real Ale is sold here.

This pub overlooks the marshes & River Waveney. Convenient for river users, railway travellers & ramblers. The comfortable lounge & dining area leads though to the garden room restaurant which has a good reputation & uses local produce (booking advised). An open fireplace separates the lounge & public bar. A converted barn in the attractive grounds is used for regular musical events featuring local artistes & occasional beer festivals. Guest beers are sourced from local micros.
