A lively town-centre pub based around a central bar.

Since September 2019 it has been run by the same management team as that of the Framlingham Castle Inn.

The date on the wall, 1707, is believed to be when major alterations were made to the pub (possibly undertaken to reduce the first floor overhang). The building itself probably originates from the previous century or earlier. It's one of the town's most ancient inns; one of only 24 to appear on a town assessment of 1689. The building exterior is a Grade 2 listed.
