The pub stands on the original Bury-Diss road (now bypassed by the A143), opposite the large village green. It still has a nice old Lacon's plaque still in the wall.

Renamed the Manor House in December 2015 (fresh photos when our roving photographer can cycle out there from Ipswich).

A dolphin is seen as a friendly animal that would help ancient mariners by twining itself round the anchor cable in a storm to prevent the anchor dragging. It also features in many coats of arms including the Fishmongers Company and the Company of Watermen. In France from the 14th cent. the eldest son of the king was known as "le dauphin".
