A Grade II listed one-time free house, believed to date from mediaeval times. It is situated midway between Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds. The pub had a warm and friendly atmosphere and catered for all types of functions. To the left of the entrance was a separate public bar with a pool table, dart board and other pub games. Straight ahead was the lounge, dining room, and restaurant.

B&B rooms were opened mid-2010.

In May 2015, planning permission for conversion to residential use was granted on appeal. The impression was that pub would close as soon as a buyer has been found, but it was found de-signed and evidently only operating as a B&B when visited in November 2015, while still apparently for sale.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. …
