The Paddock – home to our Icelandic & Hebridean sheep, is a large, beautifully grassed area surrounded by trees and backing onto the ancient Freston Woods, set behind the pub garden. We’re very good at tailoring food to your events – there will be a rocket pizza oven and an area where we can set up one (or more) or our famed & quirky cooking contraptions such as the Chicken Candelabro, charcoal hog roast, Chinese hot box or Winch Asado. With walkways through the fruit trees into the kitchen garden and overlooking the Orwell Bridge & river there’ll be plenty of opportunities for some cool pics and fantastic times.

We’ve hooked up with the blummi’ wonderful Events Under Canvas to sort out our marquee stuff. Although ‘marquee’ doesn’t do it justice – they do incredible tipis – see the pic (and are based just down the road). Give us a buzz, we’ll go through some basic details such as dates & numbers and then pass you into their capable hands for the canvas bit, then the fun foodie/drinks chats start! The tipis will be set up in out Paddock which happens to be a stone’s throw from the beautiful Freston Church (in case you need somewhere fab to have the ceremony, take look at some pics here), so a short walk through the woods (pick your dates right and you’ll have a carpet of bluebells to walk over) and into the tipis, where you’ll have a view of the Orwell Bridge through old English fruit trees and our awesome kitchen garden. Which coincidentally can also double up as a canapes & champagne area.
