Changes at the White Horse at Easton, near Framlingham, include the installation of a custom-made children’s play frame and a stone baked pizza oven, in prepration for a new family-friendly menu.
The kitchen team is being led by Liam Keeting, a former sous chef at The Pier at Harwich. He said: “The opportunity to head up the kitchen at The White Horse was very exciting.
“It has always played a central role in the local community and I am very much looking forward to developing an affordable, relaxed menu that both locals and tourists will appreciate.”
Allister Catchpole, who was head chef at the White Horse from 2010 to 2013, during which it was named Suffolk Dining Pub of the Year for 2011, is returning as the new landlord.
