Good village local close to Stowmarket. Separate restaurant alongside comfortable bar. The annual race of the bogmen is held locally on Easter Mondays.
Now free, with all Greene King branding removed when visited in May 2015.
The building dates from the late 16th or early 17th century, with 19th century alterations. It was originally a group of four cottages, but was converted into a pub about 1866 to replace the White Horse, which stood over the road.
There are plans to set up a farm shop and post office at the pub.
