Historic Pubs in Suffolk

Welcome to the Moon & Mushroom Inn Swilland

Cosy Pub Fireplace

Although the name has changed, there has been a public house on this site since the early 16th Century. It is said to have been used as a staging post for convicts awaiting transportation, but the welcome today is much different!

Many of the original features remain and can still be seen in the pub.

It is a place where you can relax with friends throughout the year either round open fires or in either of the two beautiful patio areas we have created.

Real Ale Pub / CAMRA Pub

Our cask ales are still stored and served direct from the tap room. We stock a wide range on ales which we are proud to source from the local independent brewers of East Anglia.
