A former coaching inn, refurbished to a high standard. Ten rooms.
Elements of the original building are mediaeval, the floor plan having the typical H-shape open hall design of the period. With a series of extensions built to the premises in late 19th century (see pictures in gallery).
This is one of only three remaining mediaeval buildings in Haverhill; it survived the great fire of 1667, which destroyed most of the town. (One of the other two survivors is also a pub, the Queen's Head).
