Not anymore.
The place was a bit of a novelty before Covid as it only accepted credit cards when it reopened . My lowest credit card sale so far = 1£.
Good reports, but a dodgy walk due to the Shotley Road. Probably best by taxi. It could though be a heroic walk along the seashore from Woolverstone if you can work the tides , and have the Coastguard number on your phone.

We’ve eaten there half a dozen times and it’s been good every time, but, as you say, a dangerous walk along the road from Woolverstone.

It is apparently owned by the people who own the excellent but eye wateringly expensive Suffolk Food Halls on the same road but nearer Ipswich.

I don't think the Pauls own it anymore.

My one visit to Suffolk Food Halls resulted in spending a fiver on two slices of ham, and nice as it was, it wasn't worth a fiver!

Surprised no one has mentioned the Butt and Oyster. Lovely walk along the Orwell from Woolverstone, lovely location at Pin Mill and we have always had good food there over the years.

Only because the Butt and the walk to it are so widely known.😉 It is indeed lovely.
Fair point and I wasn’t aware of the Freston Boot so one for us to try when we visit Woolverstone.

Though I,ve never tried it you should be able to get across to Holbrook from in front of the school.
Co ops pretty good. The whole peninsula is criss-crossed with paths

Well, I thought I would get lifted sharpish before Foxs filled up! and now lying behind another distinguished forumite with a certain big red boat!

I helped a friend move his boat from Woolverstone to Shotley last week.
He's staying there for good. He liked Woolverstone very much for lots of reasons, but wanted to be in a place with a full range of services.

I did like the setting when I enquired about mooring there.
I wonder if this is MDL's tactic to go the log cabin route as most citizens have been staying in the uk due to the lockdown and travel restrictions this year -- and if so I hope it bites them on the Ar@e when joe blogs wants to go back to Benidorm next year because normality is started to go back to well normality.
