Whatfield Rd, IP7 7BS
Please mind your head upon entering this delightful, friendly but small rural, thatched pub with very low beams in the main bar. In fact the traditionally tiled floor is now much lower (by about 30cm) than it once was and is now below ground-level.
The more spacious public bar can be noisier and also leads to a games room with a pool table and darts. There is always an interesting selection of ales available and a garden to the rear of the pub offers a nice place to relax on sunny days. The nearest bus stop is on the main road between Bildeston and Offton.
It has been suggested that this pub dates back to the 12th century, however the Listed Buildings Register says it probably dates from the 17th or 18th century.

Historic picture (1910) in gallery shows a tree stump which has now disappeared as as the large wooden shed. To left end of the building a small, pitched roofed lean-to shed can be seen which was still there in 1975 but has been demolished since - picture supplied by Nancy Gibbon (landlady)
