A140, IP23 7ET
This former coaching inn sits at a crossroads on the A140 half-way between Ipswich and Norwich. Dating from the 1700s, it's been sympathetically extended to incorporate exposed timbers and chimney to create several seating areas. The inn has motel-style accommodation and recently enlarged outside eating areas.
Local legend tells of a tunnel running from here to The Four Horseshoes inn at Thornham Magna nearby. It has had the same owners and hosts since 2000. Breakfast is served 7.30-12 Monday-Friday, 8-12 Saturday and Sunday. There's a full menu 12-9.30pm daily.
The pub is sometimes erroneously listed as being in Thornham Magna.
