This 17th century oak-beamed inn is located close to the South Green. The characterful interior is divided into separate areas with a wood panelled bar to front & quieter seated areas to rear. Patio seating to rear & front. The building is a rare survivor of the great fire of Southwold (April 1659) that destroyed most of the town.
