Overview | Gallery | Historical info | Public transport | Map

A picturesque old thatched inn with low beams and a large open fireplace in the bar area. The thatched roof is relatively new, having replaced one destroyed by fire in July 1988. Outside there is a large garden and children's play area and the pub keeps ducks, chickens and pigs.

The pub sign features St Etheldreda as the Queen. Her father was King Anna (c. 636 – 654 AD) of East Anglia, who was killed in battle at nearby Burcamp.

The building dates from the 15th or early 16th century and was known in the past as a smugglers' inn.
