Dating back to the 16th Century, The Parrot certainly has a lot of history, with its exposed solid oak beams, open fire, wonky walls and low ceilings, it oozes charm and character. 

Cosy up in the snug and bar and warm up by the log fire during the colder months or find a bench in the private walled garden for a game of boules on one of the pistes in the beer garden.

The Parrot is the perfect place for a romantic meal tucked away from everybody but equally as tempting for a family celebration.

With a menu consisting of the best that Suffolk has to offer, with the changing seasons you will find that there is something for everybody's taste. The restaurant is bright and airy with decor boasting antique clocks and a wooden floor.

On the bar you will find the best local ales from just up the road in Southwold. Not only do Adnams offer great ales but also awards winning spirits that compliment The Parrot's ever-growing list of gins, rums, whiskeys and vodkas. If wine is more your thing then order from the eclectic selection on the wine menu.

The Parrot boasts a walled garden, which has a sizeable gazebo in which private parties for up to 40 people can be catered for during the summer. There is a large car park to the rear and the pub is dog-friendly too - just make sure you call ahead to let them know that are bringing your four-legged friend.
