Longstanding landlords of a Suffolk village pub have revealed they will be stepping down after two decades in charge.

Charles Rogers and his wife Eilir have run The Dog in Grundisburgh for the last 20 years, becoming a prominent part of the village and the local area. 

The couple have revealed they are moving onto pastures new after putting the pub on the market with estate agents Fleurets.

"I have run the pub for the last 20 years with my wife," said Mr Rogers.

"We are just going to move on to do something else. 

"We have loved our time at the pub. It has been an enjoyable 20 years. We just fancy a change in our lives."

The establishment has become one of the best known pubs in Suffolk, in particular with animal lovers after it was named the most dog-friendly pub in the East of England.

Mr Rogers added: "Comments from customers and staff, they are very supportive to us.

"There is no hard feeling it is just 'good for you. You have been here for a long time you deserve to move on.'

"There is lots of support for the pub in the village. "
