old OS map

This large, timber framed pub with a distinctive Victorian façade was situated close to the centre of the village. Good food was available throughout the daytime and helped to make it a favourite place for both local people and walkers alike.

The core of the building dates from the mid-17th century, with several subsequent alterations.

Mid-Anglia CAMRA reported (in January 2016) that the pub had been closed for some time, future unknown. It was subsequently converted into an antiques shop.

Owner/operator: free
Victorian façade hides a C15th timbered interior. Naval memorabilia in the rear area comes to life on Navy Day when the local ‘Jack Tars’ commemorate the passing of the tot with fireworks, fun and day opening! Interesting micro guest beer which, along with the weekday daily special represent an incredibly good bargain. A beer festival is held during May. A welcome recent return to the GBG.
