Keen to sample our brewery’s delights? Well, you’re in luck – we have plenty of socially distanced seating on a first come first served basis.

Come down and enjoy a pint and stock up for home with a wide and changing selection of bottled and fresh beers while you’re here. We also stock hand-selected wines, spirits and soft drinks.

We have a lovely south facing beer garden with covered deck where you can while away the afternoon in the beautiful Suffolk countryside.

We often have street food offers available at weekends, see our events page or Facebook for more details.

For the very few oddballs that don’t like beer, we have a large range of soft drinks, wine, fizz and craft gins for a special G&T.
