White Hart Inn, Aldeburgh
The White Hart Inn is not much larger than a big scout hut and looks quite like one too, but it doesn't half pack things in. Inside there's a single room with a corner bar serving a good range of real ales on the hand pumps - not just Adnam's even though it is an Adnam's pub, a selection of other beers, cider and wines and a rather impressive array of malts on the optics. The pub is clad floor to ceiling (including the ceiling) in tongue-and-groove boarding, adding to the hut ambience, although it's a hut with rather nice stained glass windows. There's a welcome open fire and the walls are decorated with maritime and sporting pictures and signed England rugby shirts. And it doesn't stop there, there's often live music (space made a available by clearing out a lot of the furniture) and it's bang opposite one of the best chip shops on this coast (you should see the queues). It's a cosy, cheerful sort of pub, with friendly, polite service and jolly, chatty locals. In the world championship of pubs, the White Hart punches well above its weight.
