|Pub in a lovely spot that seems to have a good balance between being a gastro pub and a drinking pub. |
Available ales were Greene King IPA, Adnams Best, Buntingford's Pargeter Mild and Mauldon's Mid-Autumn Gold. The food seemed popular, although I didn't try it. They've got a huge kitchen garden (more like a mini-farm) behind the pub along the banks of the River Stour and some of the fruit and veg comes from there. It really is in a good setting if you've got a nice day.

|Nice location for the free house pub cum restaurant in Nayland. Alongside the River Stour just past the bridge there are some nice seats to enjoy a pint or two. The river here looks pretty healthy with reeds growing on the waters edge. There is also a nice terraced and covered seating area outside closer to the back of the pub. I think that area is supposed to be for alfresco diners though. The old smokehouse past this area seems to be for storing things rather than the original use. |
Inside the pub five hand pumps were available with Adnams Bitter, Crouch Vale Summer Breeze, Cliff Quay Bitter, GK IPA and O/S/H. The Cliff Quay Bitter was in good condition however I had ask for it topped up as it had a massive head on the beer. If you are not a fan of G/K watch it as all the pint glasses seemed to have St Edmunds branding on them. I managed to quickly request a mug/jug to avoid it. Overall not a bad visit with the views from the outside seating.
