New Landlord at The Brook Inn
The Brook Inn in Washbrook has appointed a new landlord, John Rhodes.
The free house, which was bought by the community in August 2014, will continue to specialise in gluten free cooking under John who moved to Suffolk from Blackpool to take up the role.
John said he had received a great welcome since moving to the area. He said: “I’ve managed a lot of pubs over the past 25 years, but I’ve got to say the welcome I’ve received since coming here has been the best. People have made me feel very welcome.”
The Brook Inn was one of the first pubs in Suffolk to offer gluten free food and has now gained a widespread reputation for GF dishes with its accreditation from Coeliac UK. Most of the changing menu is GF, attracting customers from as far away as Great Yarmouth, Chelmsford and Bury St Edmunds.
New landlord John is planning changes to the Brook Inn: “We will continue to offer great gluten free dishes and we’ve now got in GF beers. But we’ll also be offering more local produce – Suffolk has an excellent reputation for its farm produce as well as its beers and ciders so why not use them?”
