Included in this guide for historical reasons, as this area was part of Suffolk until 1974.
The building dates from the late 16th century and once incorporated a brewery. It was originally a hostel serving the local priory, but became an inn at the time of the Reformation. It claims to be the oldest pub in Norfolk.
Railway station about 3.00 miles away (see public transport tab for details)
