Bug's Bar is to be found within the hotel.

A classic 15th century timber framed building which was being used as an inn by the early 16th century. It's family oriented, with a lively bar. It was once a calling house for pilgrims on their way to Bury St Edmunds and was earlier called the Bull Inn; it's believed to have once been named Boule House.

The hotel closed suddenly and without warning on May 19th 2017. As yet there's no word on its future. The BBC and EADT have apparently tried to contact the owners for information without success.
