A substantial single bar pub built in 1913 to replace an earlier building destroyed by fire.

The large garden leads down to the river Deben and provides an excellent location to spend some time on sunny days. An unusual arrangement of branches and lights adorn the pub ceiling and give the bar much character. The landlord can usually be found offering a few friendly words from the servery.

The landlord has also been researching the pub's history, including photos of the former Deben brewery which once also stood close by.

Footnote

The Chequers sign is an ancient sign probably brought to England by the Romans. Later the sign became associated with a money table e.g. an exchequer or type of chessboard. Some pubs displayed the sign to indicate that they would change money or acted as bankers in some way.
