A sign appeared on the pub in October 2014 saying that it's closed due to ill health. In mid-December, BBC Radio Suffolk reported that the pub is on the market either to buy or to lease. More recent reports on Radio Suffolk suggest it's either about to reopen or has already, though these seem to be unfounded as the pub was still closed when visited in April 2015, with a new-looking "for sale" sign on it.
Built late 18th/early 19th century.
The pub has a multi-roomed interior furnished with mostly East Anglian period furniture.
Stocking 3-4 local real ales at a time and hot food is available Thur,Fri,Sat at lunch time and sun lunch only.
They also encourage live traditional music.

The crown is a simple sign to show loyalty to the reigning monarch and apart from the commonwealth era (1648-60) has been a pub sign for over 600 years.
