A beautiful waterfront pub at Waldringfield

The Maybush Inn is perched on the banks of the River Deben in Waldringfield, near Woodbridge , Suffolk . The busy riverside pub and restaurant affords panoramic views across the river and beyond.

Steve & Louise Lomas of Deben Inns Ltd have been running the business since October 1997. In that time there have been many additions to the pub including access and facilities for the disabled, dining room, kitchens and fabulous patio areas.

The Maybush has become famous for its excellent food offering with a wide and varied menu including local game, meats and fresh seafood. Vegetarian options and children’s menu available.

There is a large pay and display car park (Charge refunded to patrons of the pub) and access to the sandy beach. Ramblers, sailors, bird watchers and fisherman have all found joy in this beautiful spot.

“A little pocket of paradise especially on a sunny day”

It’s situation right on the river is gorgeous especially in lovely weather. Lunchtime is best to get full sun. Adnams beer with great fish and chips is to die for and good value

“Perfect Formula”

I visited with a friend on a cold, grey November day at lunchtime….and it was packed!! Its not rocket science however, just good solid common sense, excellent business sense and a commitment to providing a great experience. I was impressed from the moment I stepped in the door and approached the bar where I was warmly greeted by a staff member, which was followed by lovely food, local ales and smiling, friendly serving staff all in lovely surroundings with spectacular views over the river.

I will keep this short and sweet. This place is simply fabulous, the food, the location, the service ( even when very busy ), and the value for money, simply top notch all round. Don’t deliberate, just go, you won’t be disappointed.

“A beautiful venue and delicious food and drink”

The pub is in a really lovely location. We ate our meals indoors, the service was very friendly and the food was the best we’d had in a long while. We eat out a lot but this was exceptional. After our meals we decided to order coffee and drink it outside so we could look over the picturesque scene of the River Deben. There was nip in a the air but the waitress offered us a blanket to keep us warm. We ended up staying there until it closed and plan to go back soon. I would recommend this pub/restaurant to anyone. Delightful!
