WELCOME TO THE BUTT AND OYSTER

GREAT LOCATION, ATMOSPHERE, FOOD & DRINK

The Butt & Oyster is one of the best known public houses in Suffolk renowned for its good beer, good food and great views, situated in the hamlet of Pin Mill on the River Orwell.

Let the sounds of the Orwell seduce you. Watch the changing tides on traditional timeless shores. Understand an artist’s inspiration with Thames barges, swans and the river, enjoying the finest Suffolk ales whilst being tempted by the wonderful aromas which welcome you.

Pin Mill, once a smugglers haven offers beautiful walks and amazing scenery, the name of the pub commemorates the oyster fisheries originally a major export from the river Orwell.

In the old days the pub would be full of bargemen and sailors enjoying a pint. Made famous as being the setting for Arthur Ransomes “we didn’t mean to go to sea” book. “It is a fantastic pub” with a welcoming and traditional atmosphere.
