Now the Long Melford B&B, it no longer operates as a pub; the bar is now only open to B&B guests.
This was a Victorian, single roomed, locals' pub close to former maltings and the old railway station.
A brewery was located here until 1952.
The Perseverance is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
