Demolished. Having studied licensing records from 1874 through to 1967 and found no sign of it, we conclude this pub must have closed before 1874.
"The road came to a stop here, (footpaths may have carried the route on to Sibton etc). My father lived in a row of cottages here sometime in the 1910's that was originally the pub, and there is now a house located here that was built on the site sometime in the 60's. It is (or it used to be) called Drum House. A second building could have been put up since. Strickland Manor Hill was too posh a name for the locals - it was always known as Hog Hill - and probably still is!"
