Overview | Gallery | Historical info | Public transport | Map

A friendly privately owned ex-Lacons free house and restaurant on the northern outskirts of the town, which has been under new ownership since July 2015. A popular carvery is served each Sunday lunch. On the walls can be found memorabilia of Zemke's Wolfpack (a US fighter pilot apparently based at RAF Halesworth during WWII).

In the December 1984 edition of Last Orders*** it was reported that the pub name relates to a tale of a lawyer, a parson and a doctor gathered around a dying man. The lawyer pleas for the man's money, the parson for his soul and the doctor for his body. Behind the scene is the devil armed with his trident (or pitch-fork) patiently waiting for the result or the debate as he intends to collect whatever the result (and probably find a use for the fork!) This story may be found depicted in a picture inside the pub. [It also appears today on the pub sign.]
