A picturesque old thatched inn with low beams and a large open fireplace in the bar area. The thatched roof is relatively new, having replaced one destroyed by fire in July 1988. Outside there is a large garden and children's play area and the pub keeps ducks, chickens and pigs.
The pub sign features St Etheldreda as the Queen. Her father was King Anna (c. 636 654 AD) of East Anglia, who was killed in battle at nearby Burcamp.
The building dates from the 15th or early 16th century and was known in the past as a smugglers' inn.
