Situated about 100m along Church Lane in this small village it is a typical 2 bar rural pub with Suffolk Pink walls & a thatched roof. It has been under the management of the Grice family since the mid 1980’s. There is evidence within the pub that the building dates from 1500 or perhaps earlier. There are settles in the main bar together with an original bar billiards table. Also evidence that old bar games such as Devil among the Tailors & Suffolk Caves have been played at the pub

The building is thought to date from the 15th century. The pub only had a beerhouse license until the 1950s or 1960s.

Footnote

The crown is a simple sign to show loyalty to the reigning monarch and apart from the commonwealth era (1648-60) has been a pub sign for over 600 years.
