  1. After discovering "PubswithCampsites.com" http://thelatebay.com/index.php?topic=11042.msg175098#msg175098 i took the bull by the horns and decided to venture the 100 miles north there and then to take advantage of the camping at The Queens Head Inn - isn't that what its all about.

    One phone call to confirm they had space confirmed that if we ordered a main meal from the restaurant menu then the pitch is free. My dad lives 10 miles north of there in Halesworth so we arranged to meet for dinner.

    One thing about Brandeston, it was a pig to find without a satnav - theres not much else around and after driving through Framlingham three times we finally found someone to ask directions of.

    Anyways - not sure how much the nights pitch would be without dinner but the menu main meals were about a tenner each and starters and desserts a £5er each. Food was very good and so was the SouthWold bitter :D. There were not many people in the pub - their main clientele are early diners and early drinkers - we were the last ones in there at 1030pm and we had the "site" to ourselves.

    The site is to the rear of the pub through the carpark - it had rained but some hardcore had been laid to sort out the worst of the mud which was only visible by the gate. There are three electric hook ups in about an acre of land backed onto by five or six houses.

    The pub locks the internal door to the toilets but leaves the external door unlocked for campers. The black building with the white window frame to the right of the photo below is a new building that houses a wet room area with an electric shower and a sink in the changing area. Very clean.

    Staff very friendly - breakfast is available from 1030am but we made our own bacon sarnies and went on our way. Will go back.
