The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Lively, two-bar modern estate pub with pool tables and dart boards. Real ale back on the bar as of 7th March 2017, but this has not proved to be consistent. Framed sports shirts adorn the walls and one bar has an old piano in the corner. The pub shows live sport including football and boxing.

According to Alfred Hedges' 1976 book, "Inns and Inn Signs of Norfolk and Suffolk", the name of the pub is explained by pronouncing the words nasally, when they sound like the cry of the heron which is shown on the sign. Which no doubt is why "frank" is a Suffolk dialect word for a heron.
