Beautiful, unspoilt and quintessentially English: Pin Mill is a gorgeous Suffolk landmark frozen in time. Nestled in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) this tiny hamlet on the banks of the river Orwell has remained relatively unchanged for hundreds of years: a collection of cottages set against stunning shoreline and ancient forest all centred around the world famous 17th century Butt and Oyster pub. Enjoying the view and talking in the landscape with a walk through the fields and along the coast is one of the undisputed highlights of any trip to Pin Mill, but this special place has a whole lot more to offer than that…
The Angel is a great little pub in the heart of the quaint village of Debenham, only a short drive from Woodfarm Barns, in the middle of the Suffolk countryside.
More of a drinkers pub than a destination or restaurant, but a friendly little place that is certainly worthy of a pitstop when passing through. They are open daily and hold regular events, so keep an eye out on their Facebook page during your visit to keep updated on what’s going on.
This is the perfect place to stop by for a drink when visiting Debenham, combined with a walk around the beautiful Hoppit Woodland & Lake community project.
This is a great country pub serving fresh home cooked locally sourced food, with a fine selection of local ales, a warm welcome and crackling log fires.
The Shoulder of Mutton is a real free house, set on the Suffolk & Essex border, in the charming village of Assington. They offer a superb range of wine, ales, and lagers, as well as award winning cider from across the county.
Privately owned village inn, in a lovely old Suffolk building
The menu changes every five weeks and they embrace seasonally available produce. They have a bar, restaurant and terrace, all of which are very comfy. Extensive wine list and cask ales, including the traditional Suffolk favourite Adnams
The food is superb at the Crown and they are open for breakfast, lunch and supper
Well worth a visit. A firm fave with our guests at Woodfarm
One of the best known pubs in Suffolk and a firm favourite with Woodfarm guests
Famed for great Adnams beers, fabulous home cooked food and the most stunning location right on the river Orwell
A proper old riverside pub with bare oak floorboards, pints pulled straight from the keg and the smells wafting from the kitchen. This place is popular with locals and visitors alike and in the summer is heaving outside giving it a great atmosphere
A great place to visit when in Suffolk and just a stones throw from the Suffolk Food Hall (see our separate post)
A fabulous 15th century inn, overlooking the village green in this picturesque village. This is the perfect place for a long lunch or dinner, they also serve teas and coffees all day and have a wonderful bar with a roaring fire in the winter.
The Angel Inn is a beautiful, timbered 16th century building that has been an inn since the 17th century
To this day The Angel Inn remains a traditional oak beamed ‘coaching house’, in the heart of this idyllic Suffolk village, offering all the comfort of modern life, in an historic setting
It has a superb reputation in the area and is well known for fabulous food and drink
