This Suffolk real ale pub stocks an ever-changing range of locally brewed ales and ciders, and some wonderful locally made spirits. We also stock a range of organic fairtrade wines, a small selection of carefully chosen speciality spirits and will soon serve a selection very lovely pies.
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! On top of this we also stock an extensive range of bottled local ales, plus good quality spirits, wines and soft drinks.
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 range cooker which also heats the radiators.
Please note this is a keg-free pub, however we do stock four varieties of Suffolk bottled lagers.
Tasty ales and a warm welcome awaits you!
Our aim is to support and promote local producers. We buy direct from the manufacturer wherever possible and rotate our draught ales so each of the many small independent breweries get to showcase their wares. Where a product is available locally, we will only stock that product and won't buy in a cheaper alternative. For example, we buy most of our spirits from the award winning distillery at Adnams (they've just won an international gin award - and well deserved it is too) but you won't pay a premium rate for these superior spirits - we simply charge what you'd expect to pay for a normal spirit in a pub. If a product isn't available locally, we'll try and source fairtrade and/or organic (or small independent) and buy these either from the manufacturer or from Suma - an ethical wholefood wholesaler. You may not find the familiar brands you're used to - but we can assure you that you will be treated to an abundance of flavour and quality.
See our website, Alde Garden, which offers a selection of holiday accommodation - including yurt, tipi and gypsy caravan, and www.holiday-cottage-suffolk.com which shows the very lovely Badger Cottage.
