This 15th century pub has a colourful history. Claimed to be both the former home of the Bishop of Norwich and later a whorehouse! The pub is a mix of timber framed rooms with a large open fire in the main bar. To the rear there is a large garden beside a small stream and ample car-parking.

Two regular beer festivals are held, one in early June and the other in November (check website for details). The November festival also coincides with St Edmund's day; both events include music from local groups. Excellent home cooked food is also available with many food options prepared with local produce.
