Stunning locations, friendly atmosphere, great food and drink
The Deben Inns story began in 1992 while the Lomas family were running The Wilford Bridge at Melton. The next step came when the business acquired the lease of The Maybush Inn, Waldringfield, in October of 1997 and four years later another beautiful riverside location in the form of The Butt & Oyster at Pin Mill. The Fox Inn, Newbourne, The Coach and Horses at Melton, The Swan at Westerfield and The Ship at Levington have all since joined the group, with each site offering its own individuality and uniqueness.
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.
We are a champion for using local produce and where possible we source our ingredients from local Suffolk businesses, keeping our food fresh and ensuring quality. Our real ales are a feature of ours Inns, all being cask marque certified, and each pub has a different range to choose from, again supporting local brewers when we can.
All of the pubs welcome families and dogs, cater for the disabled and have ample parking on site. We also offer a range of coffees and teas, and hot chocolates for the children.
