The Butt and Oyster is one of the best known public houses in Suffolk renowned for its good beer, good food and great views, situated in the hamlet of Pin Mill on the River Orwell. Let the sounds of the Orwell seduce you. Watch the changing tides on traditional timeless shores. Understand an artist’s inspiration with Thames barges, swans and the river, enjoying the finest Suffolk ales while being tempted by the wonderful aromas which welcome you. Once a smugglers’ haven, Pin Mill offers beautiful walks and amazing scenery. In the old days the pub would be full of bargemen and sailors enjoying a pint, and today it is a “fantastic” pub, with a welcoming and traditional atmosphere. Pin Mill was made famous as the setting for Arthur Ransome’s book We Didn’t Mean to go to Sea.
