We stayed here one night mid week whilst walking around Minsmere. The staff were really friendly and helpful making us feel very welcome. The room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom was a little tired looking but everything worked fine. It was so quiet and peaceful overnight. Our evening meal was very nice, whitebait to start which was...

Been a while since we'd been here. The Adnam's beer is still great, fine choice of great ales. The real surprise for us was the food. A good choice of really tasty meals, much better than your average "pub grub". We were all very impressed.

I visited as part of a group of ten recently. Food bookings not accepted but we 'phoned in advance to tell them that a large group would be visiting for a meal. We were told that it wouldn't be a problem and they were true to their word. Orders were taken, and served quickly and efficiently - a well run...

Great location. Wonderful outlook from room. Very clean and rooms warm and look good, loads of hot water. Breakfast served in bar, but fire not lit so a bit chilly. Plates always cold so food did not stay warm for long, spinach with most dishes, personally i didnt think food was very good and quite dear for specials that were...

We were on a Suffolk coastal walk and, as my friend recalled this historic pub from previous visits, we decided to stop here on a bitterly cold day to have a pint and some soup. The Eel is now part of the Adnam's pub chain and suitably polished. A nice variety of Adnams ales though no guest beers - which...

A place we come to relatively often and food is always good. They have a lovely garden and being a pleasant august evening we sat outside. My hubbie had sausages and mash which he really liked and I had crab salad which was good but only criticism I would make is it was not over generous compared to others I...

Stayed here for just one night, wished it had been more. The room was beautifully decorated and extremely clean. Had tea and coffee making facilities which was lovely. Great place to stay too if you are going to RSPB Minsmere as it's just up the road.

We were spending a couple of days in and around Minsmere. We have driven past The Eels Foot Inn many times and it always looked inviting. We only stayed one night but we will be back. A really traditional pub with a good selection of beers, excellent evening meal and very good breakfast. The room was spacious and very comfortable...

Went there for Sunday lunch at three o'clock, when other pubs in the area had closed off lunch. They are amazing at turning out so many meals (serving from 12pm to 9pm) quickly and of high quality from an extensive menu. Four of us had cod with hand cut fries, house made tartare sauce, and peas. Very enjoyable.

We wher staying near by and the eels foot was recommended to us. We wher not disappointed. Got there late evening and it was busy so thought we would be out of luck. The staff said we could have a drink while we wait for a table. Within 10 minutes they got us a table. The staff and locals are...
