The Butt & Oyster, Pin Mill

The Butt & Oyster, Pin Mill

Fine weather or foul the Butt and Oyster offers a marvellous vantage point for water watchers.  

Pin Mill is a hub for Thames Barges with their iconic red sails, house boats in all shapes and forms and of course a plethora of sailing dinghies and yachts which make their way majestically up the Orwell towards the Orwell Bridge.  

In summer visitors sit on the benches outside chatting about the boats.  In winter there is nothing better than a walk along the shoreline, where you will see hundreds of winter waders and wildfowl, followed by a really relaxing  evening in the pub toasting your toes in front of the open fire.

The Butt and Oyster has a genuinely nautical feel and the warmth and welcome of a traditional tavern. You can eat in the main bar and restaurant  or if you prefer a bit more intimacy have a look at  the smaller side room where there is an inviting wood-burning stove.

The menu is varied and you can go for "light bites" tapas, olives, sun-blush tomatoes, Mediterranean cheeses and interesting breads or the delicious options on both the printed menu and special boards.There's an excellent selection of seasonal fish dishes as well as the usual meat offerings but choose what you wish it will be delightful.

Advice - leave space for the puddings; traditional plum pudding or treacle tart - just as you wish your mum had made them!
