The Street, IP20 0LB

grid reference TM 295 801

This was a large rural pub with 'Twister' in the main bar. There were hitching rails in car-park and a child friendly garden.

The pub closed in August 2009 with much local acrimony reported in the local media. It was converted into tearooms, but we noted in June 2015 that it's now a B&B.

The present building replaced another pub of the same name nearby (see the gallery); we don't know when, but it must have been after 1903, as a large-scale OS map of that year shows no buildings where the later pub was.
