Lovely pub with welcoming friendly helpful staff. The curry we had was excellent and very good value for money. Beer was perfect. I recommend this pub. Well worth a visit.

Had a really great Sunday roast today at this beautiful traditional thatched Suffolk pub. So good to visit a pub as it should be with friendly staff and great food & drinks. Had a period when it dipped but now it's really back in business....More

The Sorrel Horse is a local to us and we go there quite often and it's aways good but this evening I had an excellent veggie meal which was so tasty, followed by a delicious pudding. The others in my party also enjoyed their more...More

If you want good food eat somewhere else quite simply not a pleasant experience. Poor presentation,warmed up value chips a burger which looked as if had been thrown together. I blame myself I should have taken on board what others have said.

Booked a table here and enjoyed a lovely family meal. They were extremely accommodating and we had no complaints about the service or food which was both excellent. Meal spoiled a little by the presence of at least 6 large flies which hassled us throughout....More

We arrived here at 8.30pm as a family group. Ordered some delicious Suffolk cider and Fish, chips and peas. The food was spot on and piping hot. Just what we needed after a busy day with kids.

Arrived at the Sorrel Horse at midday today and waited outside for some sign of life. The bar staff eventually ambled up at 12:30 just as we were leaving. Not usually a sign of a well run pub so carried on and went somewhere else....More

Reputedly a Smugglers Inn dating back to the 15th century, The Sorrel Horse is the quintessential English country pub with tap drawn cask ales, a thatched roof, tiled floors and an original bar billiards table, nestled in a picturesque rural Suffolk village. Given our fantastic location on the Bawdsey Peninsula in glorious countryside, the pub is especially attractive to walkers, cyclists and the horse fraternity. Superb walks, open rolling countryside and the quiet and genteel nature of the area make the village a popular destination for visitors. With two bars you've a choice of both a restaurant or traditional bar for your food and drinks. The restaurant has a large wood burner, with the bar having a lovely open fire.
