A Grade 2 listed building converted into a large single bar. It's a popular lively venue. There are normally four well-kept Real Ales on offer, mainly from East Anglian breweries. And they're well-priced.
It's aimed at being the kind of pub where people can meet and enjoy conversation over a few drinks. Although sport tends to often be shown on large screens, the volume is down, so as not to disturb drinkers.
The pub was renamed the Thomas Wolsey in September 2011.
The building dates from the 17th century.
