Has been closed since about 2011 or earlier; will it reopen? Somehow it seems unlikely after all these years. Both this and the nearby (also closed) Plough, seem to be owned by the Elveden estate who, from notices attached to the pubs seem to think that the Elveden Inn is a suitable replacement for Icklingham villagers.

16th century Thatched pub that was a free house.
