Also reported as Bridge St.
The pub is shown on OS maps at least as late as 1970, but can't be seen on the 1975 or subsequent sheets, so presumably closed beween those dates.
"I was stationed with the USAF at RAF Mildenhall twice (1966-1969 & 1987-1991). I played darts for the Ship’s team in 1966. Mrs Williams was the operator and had a little guy named Cyril who worked for her. Cyril knocked her stone wall over once with her car. It just fell over all in one piece and was stood right back up, amazing. She was a great lady. She used to loan us ten shillings each on the nights before payday and we would drink beer and play darts in the room in the back just off the bar, with a coal burning fireplace. Beer was only 2 bob in those days (Steward & Pattison). We would pay her back after pay day. She had a large standard poodle name “Topper”. Those were the days my friend. Thank you for doing such a splendid job with this web site. Sorry for taking too much of your time." (info from Richard K. Rogers)
