CAMRA West Suffolk & Borders branch.

This pub is shown on OS maps at least as late as 1884, but disappears from the 1903 sheet onwards, so presumably closed between those dates.

According to A Survey of Suffolk Parish History, the Crown dates back at least to 1723.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** in 1876 (Jan-15) when Mr Palmer was landlord states:

James Earl a tinker slept in a barn belonging to the Crown. Eleven fowls, two of which were decapitated, were discovered in the barn, these birds had been stolen from a farm where Earl was working. Found guilty he received 9 months.
