previously known as: Red Lion
Real Ale is available here

The 16th century Red Lion reopened in October 2019 as the Guinness Arms, with the name inspired by the Guinness family's connections with the Elveden Estate, which owns the pub.
Although quite "foodie", it's designed so that people who "just" want a drink are welcome throughout the pub. There are eight hotel rooms as well.
Beer served through handpulls
Restaurant or separate dining area
Beer garden or other outside drinking area
