Large coaching inn that once stood in the village. The pub dated back to at least 1783, when the Norfolk Chronicle reported the death there of one Robert Rayner.
In 1830 the "Royal Mail Telegraph" coach to London (via Saxmundham, Wickham Market, Woodbridge & Ipswich) called every morning at seven whilst the "Shannon" called every morning at six. The returning "Shannon" to Halesworth called every evening at half past seven. The "Royal Mail Telegraph" coach to Yarmouth (via Wangford & Lowestoft) called every morning at half past seven.
Burned down in 1925.
Shown here on the 1884 OS map.
