CURRENTLY OPEN OUTDOORS ONLY
last updated 19 July 2021
Our beautiful beer garden can seat up to 42 people in 6 different seating areas - and has a roof to shelter from the rain - and is open for drinks and snacks at the following times:
SATURDAYS 6pm - 10pm
SUNDAYS 12 noon - 5pm
why is the indoors not open yet? - despite being at Step 4 of the Roadmap, for the safety of customers and staff we are currently trading outdoors only. We are working on improving ventilation in the pub building - we will update this page when we are ready to safely allow customers indoors.
This Suffolk real ale pub stocks an ever-changing range of locally brewed ales and ciders, and some wonderful locally made bottled ales & spirits. We also stock a range of organic fairtrade & local wines , a selection of carefully chosen speciality spirits & soft drinks and a small selection of locally made snacks.
For our ales we tend to focus on small local breweries, and we like to seek out new brews all the time, so you're likely to find something you may not have tried before. We always have at least two draught local ales to choose from, as well as one draught local cider. We like to think of it as a very slow beer festival!
The public bar has a selection of traditional pub games including bar billiards, darts and a few other treats. The Sweffling White Horse is a dog-friendly pub.
Heated entirely by wood - the lounge bar has a large woodburning stove, and the public bar is home to a lovely wood-fired range cooker which also heats the radiators.
As well as the two main rooms the pub also has a small beer garden with a rustic arbor, enchantingly lit by candles and fairylights at night. The beer garden is open from spring equinox to autumn equinox, every Sunday lunchtime and every pub night until 10pm.
Please note this is a keg-free pub, however we do stock five varieties of Suffolk bottled lagers.
The pub also has its own holiday accommodation in the form of a self-catering cottage & campsite - see the Accommodation page for more info.
Tasty ales and a warm welcome awaits you!
** why the short opening hours? Pubs need some form of diversification these days - for most pubs it's meals. Our pub's support comes in the form of a campsite in the garden - which is a full time job in itself. Whilst this means we can't open the pub 7 nights a week, it does also mean the pub can retain its character as a drinking pub & drinkers are not fighting for tables pre-booked by diners. It also means we are not competing for trade with the other fantastic food pubs nearby.
