The Crown Inn was a place for dinner with friends or a fish and game feast for that special occasion.

The bar and restaurant were refurnished with a separate dining room and the whole pub area could be booked for private functions.

According to a local resident talking to Lesley Dolphin on BBC Radio Suffolk in 2015, the pub was closed and had been sold to the neighbouring poultry factory. When visited in August 2016, there were notices saying it's going to be demolished in October. However, when visited in August 2017, the building was still standing (and fully-signed) and appears to be being used as offices.
