The current building was originally four cottages dating from about 1625. Converted in 1968 to create an attractive pub which offers a simple but comfortable public bar and a larger and characterful restaurant/lounge.

The original Bell is now called Dial House and can be found opposite the church. Interestingly, nearly 50 years after the pub moved, Suffolk County Council's bus schedules still refer to it as the New Bell.

Dogs are welcome in the pub but not in the restaurant area.
