A former coaching inn retaining stables to rear.
Renamed the Venue 2010/2011.
When visited in September 2013 it had been renamed "Dine India". Offers an Indian restaurant and takeaway, but still appears to retain a small "proper" bar area, though no Real Ale was visible on the bar.
In June 2016, a resident of the village told Radio Suffolk's Lesley Dolphin that "The Indian is no longer there". Whether this means it's back to a pub or has closed is currently unknown, but we plan a look soon.

The title of Duke of Grafton was created in 1675 by Charles II of England for his 2nd illegitimate son by the Duchess of Cleveland, Henry FitzRoy. The most famous duke was probably Augustus FitzRoy, 3rd Duke of Grafton, who served as Prime Minister in the 1760s. The family seat is Euston Hall in Suffolk.
In 1900 the Duke of Grafton was listed a lord of the manor & principal landlowner in the parish of Barnham. He also owned a tile & brick field and restored the parish church, dedicated to St Gregory).
