Once a coaching in on the London-Norwich road, this no frills pub has lots of character. Bare floorboards, old furniture , old photos and taxidermy exhibits add to the atmosphere. Busy bar, quieter lounge/restaurant and a back room Occasional live music Fridays, Food speciality is pizzas cooked in the wood-fired oven (not Sun, Mon) Parking is very limited

Note that parking at the pub is very limited.

The building dates from the late 15th century, though it was partly rebuilt and extended about 1600.

The spaniel on the sign (the sharp-eyed will have spotted that it's not a greyhound) is called Elvis and is owned by the pub's proprietor, Chris Burnard.

Planning permission has been granted for an on-site microbrewery, though this was some time ago and there appears to be no progress on it.
