This traditional pub is situated on the attractive village green. It's easy to miss from the A1101, as it is neatly tucked away behind the church (but does have signs on the main road).
In the mid-2010s it became "ex Greene King" so a more adventurous beer range is likely to develop. The village is quiet so most trade is passing but folk nights and Morris dancing in summer are popular.
The pub is close to local attractions at Lackford Lakes (RSPB) and West Stow Country Park with its replica Saxon village, so is handy for a post visit pint!
The pub was built late 18th or early 19th century.
A listener from the village speaking to Lesley Dolphin on Radio Suffolk in November 2016 told her that the pub has been closed and empty for some time. Apparently there *is* some hope of it reopening, though she had no details.
The pub was very obviously empty and abandoned when visited in June 2017. It seems increasingly unlikely that it's going to reopen.
