Welcome to Your Suffolk Pub

Pubs, glorious pubs… Suffolk has some of the best, from revered city centre boozers to peaceful riverside beer gardens to the bars of swish hotels. We wanted to share some of our favourites with you, so welcome to the first edition of Your Suffolk Pub, brought to you by the team behind the Community News. We are passionate about our local communities – the towns, villages and hamlets we call home – and pubs play a vital role in providing common ground, a meeting place at the heart of these communities. Many a great idea has originated from a quiet night at the local! But pubs are more than that. They are a place for friends and family to gather, somewhere to celebrate special occasions, somewhere for colleagues to unwind after a busy day at work. They are places where people from all walks of life are welcome as equals. Use Your Suffolk Pub to find the best places to eat, drink and relax. We have recommendations from chefs, bartenders, winemakers and food artisans. We can point you in the direction of hidden-away places and pubs where the children and dogs will be welcome. You’ll find trustworthy recommendations all highlighted with our helpful icon buttons to let you know at a glance which amenities are on offer. We love this county and we love these pubs. Flick through and find somewhere that tickles your fancy. Please enjoy, and, make the most of Your Suffolk Pub.

The Anchor Woodbridge In a nutshell:

Our 18th Century traditional quayside pub is situated in the picturesque town of Woodbridge in Suffolk.

Don’t miss:

Enjoy great food and drink in front of a roaring open fire or basking in the sun in the courtyard garden. A friendly welcome awaits you.

Chef’s choice:

Find us on social media

Vernon Blackmore and the team have now been at the Anchor for ten years, our offer has developed into what we feel a quayside pub should be. Great beers, a friendly warm welcome, food that you would expect in a good British hostelry with additional dishes that reflect our backgrounds and passion. We want you to feel the history in the pub so we have been very careful not to remove the old charm and character, the floor tiles may have been professionally cleaned, but they are still a bit wobbly and remind you of the sailors that have spilt beer on them in the past. However a pub is about people so come and enjoy it with us and let us welcome you in. Check out our website for full details of opening times, menus and events. Part of the portfolio looked after by Vernon Blackmore and his team. Also check out our Woodbridge restaurant, traditional quayside pub and our country pubs: The Table, The Anchor in Woodbridge, Easton White Horse and The Duck Campsea Ashe.

It is now three years since the Fleece reopened under new ownership. In that time the team, led by Manager Graeme Sims, have established a superb reputation and good customer base. The business has evolved in that time and now as we move in to the main summer months there are plenty of exciting plans at the Fleece. Inside the pub you will find the friendly informal atmosphere has been extended to the newly refurbished Upstairs Dining Room. Previously this was a more formal function room – great for larger groups and parties looking for that type of setting. However, Graeme has found that there was increasing call for a more relaxed setting. Yes, this is still a space for large groups, but it is equally comfortable for use as an extension to the dining space. Anyone interested in booking the Upstairs Dining Room can speak with one of the team and Graeme and Head Chef, Justin, will put together a bespoke menu to suit your tastes and budget.

The Parrot Aldringham In a nutshell:

A deeply historical and archeologically, interesting establishment. Full of character, life and serving its locals and visitors with tremendous food and drinks.

Don’t miss:

Dining in our 500-year-old pub, soaked in history which brings such charm to the restaurant.

Chef’s choice:

From behind the bar:

The bar is stocked with a great choice of craft gins, whiskies and bourbons alongside our eclectic wine list that offers something for everybody.

Find us on social media

The Inn was built around 1576 when it was originally named ‘The Case Is Altered’. In 1604 the Kemp family acquired the Inn and renamed it The Parrot and Punchbowl. The Parrot’s bar and snug both offer an insight into years gone by, with an array of black and white pictures and artwork. The spoken stories tell of more however… In a village steeped in history, with even a mention in the 1086 Doomsday book, the Parrot is the oldest building in the parish of Aldringham-cum-thorpe. Interestingly, the Parrot has had a long history of smuggling, which continued until the late 18th Century, a chat about this with the locals, is well worth it! With the arrival of David and Chris in the summer of 2017 the Parrot remains its true-self, but Chris and David are currently making the garden great and the surrounding areas more habitable for the local wildlife. Pride is taken also in not having any single use or disposable plastic available at the bar as they continue to reduce the amount of plastic that is thrown away. So the future of The Parrot is looking greener, and most certainly bright, as they look forward.
