Suffolk Pub

Perched on the banks of the picturesque River Deben, Waldringfield near Woodbridge – in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – lies the Maybush Inn. You will be greeted with panoramic views offering a vista across the river and beyond. The Maybush, voted one of Suffolk’s top riverside pubs, has become synonymous with providing excellent food at great value, in an unrivalled location.

Fresh food

You can expect a varied selection of food and drink and although there is some influence from the waterside location (see seasonal Deben Moules Mariniere), there is a plenty of choice to suit all tastes. Recently a finalist in a Eat Suffolk Food and Drink Awards in the Family Dining Category, The May bush caters for all ages and prides itself of offering a welcoming and friendly environment.

Deben Inns – a group of individual inns

Our ethos at Deben Inns is providing great food with friendly service, at good value, and the surroundings at each location will only enhance the experience of visiting a Deben Inn. We believe it’s very important to keep the individuality of each pub intact and each team of chefs are encouraged to incorporate their own ideas and style of cooking, under no constraints.
