Market Ln, NR32 5AN
Built in a mock-Tudor style with wood panelling & exposed beams, this village inn has a large attractive grassed garden with mature trees and a paved area with a pergola that is particularly popular during summer months. Inside there is a main bar with pewter mugs and water jugs hanging down, an attached games room and a separate room which is a well-used restaurant. Charles Dickens mentioned this pub in his book, David Copperfield and this is noted at the pub and the nearby village hall.
The sign has distinct "day" and "night" sides (see the gallery).
The building probably dates from 1701.
