Once a coaching inn on the London-Norwich road, this no frills pub has a loyal following of regulars and lots of character. Bare floorboards, old furniture, old photos and taxidermy exhibits add to the atmosphere. It has a busy bar, quieter lounge and a pool room. Good home-made burgers are available Wednesday nights. Sunday food is stew only. Live music Fridays, monthly curry night. Some beers may be served under CO2

The building dates from the late 15th century, though it was partly rebuilt and extended about 1600.

The spaniel on the sign (the sharp-eyed will have spotted that it's not a greyhound) is called Elvis and is owned by the pub's proprietor, Chris Burnard.

Planning permission has been granted for an on-site microbrewery, though this was some time ago and there appears to be no progress on it.
