Welcome to the Wilford Bridge

The Wilford Bridge is located at the head of navigation on the River Deben and only a short distance from one of Britain’s most important archeological sites, Sutton Hoo. Enjoy local history, take a river walk then come make the most of our welcoming inn.

With exceptional, well maintained walks and beautiful local surroundings, our Inn is a perfect destination for those that enjoy fine food and drink in a traditional ambience.

The exterior features a floral and pleasant fenced patio area, ideal for al fresco dining or enjoying a glass of wine or ale in the summer. The bar area is made complete with a roaring fire and plenty of alcoves which creates a traditional relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant is spacious and is ideal for large parties and with friendly, courteous staff you’ll be served quickly and efficiently

  • Our menu reflects the seasonal availability of the finest local produce, specialising in the very best seafood such as Orford Crab, succulent Lobster and Shingle Street Cod.

    Of course we are more than able to produce a tender steak cooked to perfection or unbeatable classics such as homemade steak and kidney suet pudding.

    We pride ourselves in presenting the very best in real ales such as Adnams and have regular guest ales which are perfectly conditioned. Alongside our fine beers we have a great selection of wines, larger and ciders. 

    We are open all day 7 days a week and serve food all day. The black boards are filled with daily seasonal specials and a fantastic homemade curry which is not to be missed is on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On a Sunday we do a magnificent traditional roast with all the trimmings. 

    The Wilford Bridge thrives on the reputation of its food with the highest standards being maintained at all times, so we are confident you’ll return time and time again.

The Wilford Bridge is proud to announce that we have achieved a Cask Marque for our real ales.  All of our ales scored 100% and with our three hand pumps (soon to be four)  constantly serving a wide variety of ales from around the country it keeps a good turn over which reflects in the quality. It is of upmost importance to us to be serving a consistently high standard of all our beers and with real ale recently soaring in popularity its a real achievement to be acknowledged.
