The premises was extensively renovated and extended 2010-2011.

Two former roomed pub is located on a busy main road and has been mainly used as a restaurant in recent years.

It has been (incorrectly) listed as being in Wattisfield.

Now trading as a 50's style restaurant and called a Lollipop Diner; there is a nice nod to the building's history in the retention of the pub sign at one end of the premises.
