Reopened in May 2013 as gastro pub. The proprietor is chef Oliver Macmillan who also owns The Swan in Long Melford.

Food is served lunchtime and evening Monday to Saturday as well as Sunday lunchtime - there's no food Sunday evening.
Reputedly the oldest pub in town, it has been in continuous use since 1625, but recorded at least as early as circa 1563.
