Built 16th century. The pub appears on OS maps at least as late as 1985, so must have closed since then.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Jan 1880 states that :

Married on the 23rd December 1879 at St. Michael's Church, Beccles, James Potter, of the Crown and Anchor Inn, Beccles to Eliza Jane Beaves, Studland, Dorsetshire.
