A listed building, this popular local sits in the middle of the village a short walk from the railway station. The restaurant, serving good home cooked food, is within the public bar area separated by up-lights from an original wall, with a separate bar for pool and darts. On bank holidays and special occasions live music is performed. The pub holds regular quiz nights and bingo. Accommodation is available.

Although the pub can appear food-oriented, people just there for drinks are welcomed.

It's deservedly a many-times winner of West Suffolk CAMRA's pub of the year and overall Suffolk pub of the year as well.

The pub was originally built to provide drinks for labourers building the railway line and station.
