This 15th Century pub was re-opened in 2016 after refurbishment by the new owner. Featuring exposed beams and low ceilings, the pub is bright and airy with several areas for eating and drinking including an upstairs dining room, which can be booked for special occasions. The guest ales are normally from local breweries.

Access for disabled customers is at the rear of the pub, via Castle Orchard.

Originally called the Cross Keys and known to have been built before 1500, the pub got its present name some time before 1711.

Footnote

The fleece is a common reference to the wool trade that was very important in Suffolk, particularly in 17th & 18th cent. until cheap imports from the colonies undermined the trade.
