Inns in Orford
Built in the late 16th /early 17th Century, this atmospheric old Smugglers' Inn is timber-framed, the wood rumoured to have come from ships wrecked nearby. Todays clientele includes walkers, sailors, fishermen and visitors from further afield who have heard of the excellent cuisine and friendly atmosphere. The Jolly Sailor is a traditional English pub, situated near the Quay at Orford, part of the lovely Suffolk Heritage Coastline. Offering three newly refurbished double rooms with ensuite bathrooms, the deepest roll-top baths, comfortable duvets and fluffy towels. Each of the rooms have Nespresso Coffee machines and DAB Radios. Enjoy the log fires, great food, dominoes and shove-ha’penny or just read the papers and relax. If you require an extra child's bed in your room, please also add this to the booking form. Breakfast is included. Food can be enjoyed in the main bar, the Snug, the Chart Room which is decorated with maritime charts, the lounge or the newly opened Thames Room with its recently exposed 17th century flooring or in fine weather, the garden. There will always be beer battered fish & chips, sea bass and in season mussels, crab and lobster. Adnams Ales are famous for their distinctive range of beers for discerning drinkers. Specialist seasonal beers are always available including Old Ale, Oyster and the seriously heavy Tally Ho! With a large garden which, when all the planting is completed, will be a haven for birds, bees and butterflies. A children’s play tower and camping is available in the orchard. From the garden and orchard are views of the marshes and saltings, located next to the working quay on the River Ore, opposite Orford Ness and close to the marshy bird sanctuary Havergate Island, where avocets breed.
