Now residential.

Until its closure this two bar pub was run as a free house, with one room filled with Napoleonic memorabilia and associated war gaming displays.

The external features date from the 18th century, but the timber frame is much older.

A book called "A Suffolk Childhood" by the late Simon Dewes describes a village pub called the Five Horse Nails Inn? but we are not sure if he is referring to the Four Horseshoes by a different name - reference discovered by Bob Mitchell.
