Our Story

The Low House plays an important part in the history of Laxfield. It also features highly in the lives of many local residents and their extended families around the world.

The Low House has for centuries been a focal meeting point and socialising place; a thriving business thanks to the people who have chosen to meet there at the end of a day’s work to wind down and relax.

Having bought the pub in May 2018, through the Community Interest Company we established, we are busily welcoming people, old and new to come and relax with us: we want everyone to experience what CAMRA agrees is our unique pub‘s life and soul.

On behalf of everyone who has relied on the Low House in the past and those who are supporting it into a thriving future, we look forward to welcoming you to a pub that is very much alive and kicking.

With a wide range of excellent beers, well chosen wines, lager and cider plus of course, delicious, traditional (but affordable) pub food we provide everything you would want from a unique country pub.

We are focusing on developing a range of specialist, distinctive spirits from some well known and some quite remote corners of the world.

We are also pleased to welcome some traditional events at the pub; some that were enjoyed in the past like horse-drawn carriage rides and some new ones like the Publican’s Purse and a fine Meat Raffle on a Sunday…more on this later.

In addition, there are lots of entertaining evenings and events being planned for everyone to enjoy – unique to the spirit of the village and with the help of people in the village. There are also lots of beautiful places to camp and stay in Laxfield like Little Klabang Farm Camping with its beautiful orchard and family welcome. There is also The Croft Campsite which is well equipped to cater for all family needs. We welcome everyone to come and enjoy our garden and food whenever they can.

You’ll notice that we’ve redecorated the interior and shown the beautiful garden some much needed TLC in an attempt to restore the building to the atmosphere it has had in the past. With traditional colours, courtesy of Gerald Clements painting and decorating, approved by English Heritage, we have already made a start. We are very lucky to have the support of local businesses who have helped us with our refurbishment including Woottens Plants  who provide our beautiful hanging baskets all year round.

All this combined with our focus on having real ales kept perfectly, poured straight from the tap room and providing a plentiful range from different breweries, means that we hope you’ll be visiting us soon. Cheers!
