The Street, IP13 6AX

grid reference TM 269 529

This was a popular two bar, Grade 2 listed pub, built early in the 19th century.

Reported to have closed mid-February 2016; when visited that May it was seen that all signage has been removed, so it would appear that it won't be reopening. In late 2016, planning permission to convert the pub into a furniture shop was applied for.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1903 (interactive map)
