Go to the spitfire on a regular basis and the staff are always lovely especially Sam and Samantha, they always are there with a smile and have good knowledge of the bar drinks. The roast dinner is great, well presented and very filling.

The spitfire is our friendly local and frankly even if it weren’t we would still make the trip. The recent refurb has really improved feel of the place and the new garden area is sublime, especially with the summer we’ve had. Beware the wasps though,...More

When the Spitfire reopened we were so excited! The outside looked great and the menu looked fantastic! We regularly went there. Unfortunately, it has drastically declined. The tables outside are always filthy and we had an unfortunate incident with one of the bar tenders. This...More

This is the first time I’ve been back since they have done the refurbishment. The atmosphere and cleanliness of the pub is much better than it was before, very clean and welcoming. The only downside was that the service was very slow and the food...More

Having been something of a dive before the refurbishment, it was really good to see the pub come back to life after the brewery invested so heavily in it. Even the staff seem revitalised and proud of their pub. Food is good, beer is ok,...More

Visited this lively little gem on the recommendation of a local when desperately trying to find somewhere to eat before driving back to Suffolk from Kent. Very lively and noisy but happy atmosphere, just 3 steps up into the very relaxed restaurant and the loud...More
