Grade 2 listed building with an attractive Georgian facade overlooking former County court building and gallow (opposite) which was later used as council offices (until 2006). Now used as a single split level bar with tasteful lounge area and separate seating area for diners.
The court hearings once heard in the court included several local murders and the divorce of Mrs Wallis Simpson (1936) who was then in residence at Felixstowe and later married the former Edward VIII after his abdication.
The building dates from two periods in the 19th century.
Beers vary, with generally two real ales (mostly from this region) on sale at any one time. More beers may be added if there's sufficient trade.
