When visiting one of our holiday cottages, whether it be a remote countryside cottage, or a grade listed cottage set in a historic village, one thing that our guests often ask us is ‘Where is the nearest pub?’. Well, luckily for you, at The Grove Cottages we realise how much it means for some couples to have a pub nearby. Below are our holiday cottages near a pub, where the nearest pub is no more than a 20 minute walk away.
Holiday Cottages near a Pub in Lavenham: If staying at Mint Cottage, The Tryst or Penny Cottage in Lavenham there is a delightful pub called ‘The Angel’ in Market Place, where guests can swing by on route back from a long walk to get a drink and some lunch.
The Greyhound pub is a favourite of mine; a real village pub, located in the centre of Lavenham. These pubs are no more than a 5 minute walk from any of the holiday cottages. There is also a wine bar in Lavenham called No.10 – yet another stunningly beautiful Medieval House which has been converted into a fine dining restaurant and bar.

The Angel is a tradional Grade II 16th Century inn, where you order your food at the bar for casual dining, and excellent food. The puddings may I add are unbelievably tasty.
Overall a really relaxing atmosphere with a great selection of beers, ales and wines from around the globe. The Crown in Stoke-by-Nayland was taken over by the original owners of The Angel opposite. They state on their website: “We have a clear aim to provide delicious food and drink, and a friendly service” – In a nutshell, this is simply what they deliver.
From braised ox cheek, creamed corn with wild mushrooms & wilted spinach, to roasted partridge with curly kale and bubble & squeak croquettes; The Crown offers exquisite dishes and it has quickly grown to attain a high prestige across Suffolk & Essex.

The Swan in Long Melford is also very good, and is nestled into the heart of the village. Run by a family whom source local produce, they are very passionate about their food. Also, a fantastic wine list – which is always a bonus! The Black Lion on the Village Green has outstanding food and a very good selection of beers.
