WE ARE OPEN. 7 days a week. 10am-2pm


We have added a gazebo to supplement our regular outdoor seating and we’ve even set aside a piece of the car park to ensure social distancing protocols are observed. We will have a limited (but delicious) single-use menu which will double as your order form. Just leave on the inside table and we’ll call you when your drink, snack or meal is ready. Single-use condiments will be available. We will continue to use what Mel calls ‘proper’ plates as our dishwasher kills the virus. Call if you have a question.

We are at Hall Farm, Saxmundham Road, Aldeburgh. We’re open from 9am-4pm, seven days a week, including Bank Holidays. Open 10am-2pm until further notice. Scroll down for Menu.

We are a dog-friendly establishment.

We always offer vegetarian and vegan options. Feel free to call ahead with allergy needs and we’ll do our very best to accommodate them. Outdoor seating is available year-round. High chairs are available on request.
