Now called Dragon Cottages. We're told that the beerhouse was in the left-hand side of the building; the right-hand side was the village shop. Though curiously, the right-hand part has pargetting which would be more consistent with that having been the beerhouse (though that was added since 1993 so may not be a reliable indicator).
Closure date unknown, but certainly since 1960. Probably before 1976, as the pub is not shown on that year's OS map.

The dragon may be a reference to the Earl of Pembroke and a green dragon appears on their coat of arms. William de la Pole, 1st Duke of Suffolk was an important medieval English soldier and commander in the Hundred Years' War and later Lord Chamberlain of England. He was created Earl of Pembroke in 1447 and Duke of Suffolk in 1448.
