Our Businesses

We are on a mission to preserve British hospitality and British pubs—an endeavor that gained significance as more than 383 pubs closed in the year 2023.

Charlie Buckle began with The Lindsey Rose in 2017, and since then has expanded to manage 4 hospitality establishments and our own brewery! Each business has a strong tie to one another all bound together, but much like any family each member has its own distinct identity. From Nedging Hall to The Brewery Tap, a different experience is offered, but all of equal quality.

Embrace Suffolk through Nedging Hall Estate. The countryside of Suffolk is not something you’d ever like to miss. In Spring our lambs remind us of our historical wool trade. Summer helps us recall our deep roots connected to horse racing. Autumn is a chance to see all the colours of our ancient forests, and finally what better than a log fire in a warm pub in the Winter months. It’s all here, just waiting to be seen, and our businesses reach to every aspect of gorgeous Suffolk living.

The Lindsey Rose

For over 500 years The Lindsey Rose has affirmed itself as a charming country pub in the old village of Lindsey. The walls are filled with the memories of its history, having been first established in 1478 as a Suffolk Hall House. There had been two pubs, on opposite sides of Lindsey, The Red Rose and The White Rose, but with the closure of The White Rose, it has been The Lindsey Rose’s mission to carry on the legacy of them both.  

In 2017, Charlie Buckle brought a new life to The Lindsey Rose, and it only sparked the beginning of our Nedging Hall Estate. 

Today at the pub continues to maintain its legacy of delicious food served in a warm & always welcoming environment. From traditional Sunday Roast Dinners, to a pint of our authentic Mauldons Suffolk ale, The Lindsey Rose offers Suffolk’s finest food & drink within its historic timber-frame walls.

The Brewery Tap is a traditional yet comfortable pub.

The are the oldest brewery in East Anglia, based in Sudbury, Suffolk, with a rich heritage beginning in 1795 when Anna Maria Mauldon started brewing beer at the Bull Hotel in Sudbury. Charlie Buckle, Managing Director of Nedging Hall Estate, purchased Mauldons in September 2019.

As a family-owned business, they have a portfolio of several award-winning beers. They use malt barley grown on their own farm along with exceptional new-age hops grown in the UK. This not only is extremely rewarding but also creates a more sustainable link by reducing their carbon footprint.
