Framlingham Griffin Innhistorical era: date unknown
Access to the bar was from a side passage.
The frontage dates from the mid-19th century, though the core of the building is known to be much older. A Survey of Suffolk Parish History tells us that a deed of 1686:
describes The Griffin Inn as lying between the Crown Inn and the Lion Inn Yard.
