The main, very spacious car park is opposite the pub, so you would have to cross the road.

Yes, dogs are welcome in our bar area and beer garden. There would be no problem at all with getting a carvery at 2:45 but a call ahead would always be appreciated. We hope to see you soon!

Said to be the oldest pub in Suffolk, The Four Horseshoes is a family run, 12th century Inn, offering home cooked food and accommodation seven days a week. As well as offering great food and comfortable accommodation, The Four Horseshoes is also the ideal venue for meetings, functions and parties. We have two separate function rooms and a whole acre of car parking space.
