A village green, a thriving local shop, a meandering river and an award wining  local - Moulton really is the quintessential rural idyll. Nestled in the folds of the West Suffolk hills the Packhorse Inn sits at the heart of its community. A stroll away from the medieval bridge that inspired its name and a short trot from all that Newmarket has to offer.


The first and founding inspiration for the Chestnut Collection, The Packhorse Inn remains the patriarch of the family - after all it's where it all began.


Award winning food, inspired by season and soil, is served from breakfast through to dinner by our cheerfully, thoughtful team members. Always on hand to recommend the perfect pairing of menu and cellar offerings.


For those who have time to stay a while, our eight individually designed bedrooms deliver a restful nights sleep, even for four legged friends who are most welcome to stay.


Our kitchen is committed to sourcing the best ingredients the region has to offer, championing local food producers and their products,  game, fish and meat, cheese, leaves and vegetables.

Our regularly changing menus are inspired by season, taste and texture as well as occasion and appetite! 


Our relaxed pub serves high quality, but unpretentious long lunches, sumptuous suppers and extends into our sun filled garden throughout the warmer months. There is a choice of four different dining areas in addition to the main bar, plus a private dining area for special occasions. For the colder months our Winter Garden tipi brings the cosy comfort of a log burner outdoors with a seasonal grazing menu or our Sunday sharing roast, Great British Beef Feast - so come hungry.



Our generously proportioned bedrooms within the pub and a converted coach house, all have individual character - inspired by French country, Scandi cool and  grand Parisian style. Some rooms  light and airy, others dramatic and opulent with views of the village green or garden terrace. Crisp Egyptian cotton bed linen, indulgent king and super king beds, thoughtfully selected antique pieces and free standing baths - there’s a lot to stay in bed for!



We very much look forward to welcoming you to our neck of the woods soon, please get in touch by telephone or our contact form.
