Rest & Reset at
The Pear Tree Inn

Stay at our boutique guesthouse and get a taste of village life right here in the heart of Suffolk.

Best friends Sam & Ben acquired The Bull Freehouse in October 2020 after hunting high and low for the perfect venue. In The Bull they have found it! Having worked together in the hospitality industry for the last seven years it was time to do things their own way.

Focusing on being a ’proper pub’ with excellent food & service, coupled with a creative wine list and not forgetting the on-site microbrewery. The Bull has been brought back to life after a comprehensive refurbishment, and is the centre of the local community as well as attracting diners from further afield to sample a carefully curated daily changing menu.

The addition of The Pear Tree Inn came about in December 2022, with the purchase of a beautiful property located just thirty-five yards from the pub. The team have spent the last eight months renovating the truly stunning guesthouse, transforming the characterful 1760s farmer’s cottage into a contemporary countryside getaway.

Quality is at the heart of everything we do
countryside dining
“While the food is tremendous, and there are many other strings to the Bull’s bow, Ben is keen to stress that, above all, it’s a pub.”

“We don’t want to be pretentious,” he told our food editor. “We’re not a pub masquerading as a restaurant. If you want to come in for a pint and a packet of crisps or a Scotch egg, great. But if you want a bottle of Pomerol and a five-course tasting menu, we can do that too.”

Food for Thought

Our pub menu represents the best of what our local and regional suppliers offer. Our team shares a passion for sourcing fresh ingredients from farmers and suppliers we know locally in Suffolk (and further afield when quality dictates) to create an outstanding seasonal selection.

With three areas available to dine in, you can witness the team at work with an open pass into our intimate dining room, relax in the cosy bar area or opt for al fresco dining by the beautiful willow tree in our country-style garden.
