Yurt, Tipi, Gypsy Caravan, cottage and camping accommodation in the Suffolk countryside
Alde Garden is set in the grounds of the Sweffling White Horse – a 200-year old village pub which has recently re-opened it's doors after being closed over 8 years.
Lovingly restored by Marie & Mark - with a lot of help from friends and family - the pub reflects the same ethos as the campsite and cottage. The pub is heated entirely by wood - with a woodburning stove in the comfy lounge bar and a lovely old Esse range cooker (with back boiler to heat various radiators) in the public bar. Instead of a bar it has an old-style tap room where locally brewed real ales are served straight from the barrel. The pub also stocks some local spirits, a selection of fairtrade organic wines, soft drinks & a small array of speciality spirits. The pub doesn't serve sit-down meals, but for those wishing to stave off a hunger there is a selection of locally made very lovely pies, pasties and snacks on offer.
If you're into traditional pub games you won't be disappointed - the pub has a bar billiards table, dartboard, shove ha'penny, bagatelle and a few other treats. There is also a 'ringing the bull' game - a very traditional but now sadly quite rare pub game.
Friday - 7pm to 11pm
