You might say we're the best pub in Somerleyton...

"Our menus are designed not only to be delicious & enjoyable but to subtly show you a time & place. This is why we believe the sourcing of ingredients is so important; we want you to be able to taste the dedication, love & quality of our purveyors, but also the time of year. Our menus may at times seem repetitive, with little fanfare or frivolity on the surface but dig deeper & you will access the reasons why & understand the building blocks of not only our menus but of us."

James Santillo, Chef & Owner
