Lively modern estate pub with good following for local football team.
According to Alfred Hedges' 1976 book, "Inns and Inn Signs of Norfolk and Suffolk", the name of the pub is explained by pronouncing the words nasally, when they sound like the cry of the heron which is shown on the sign. Which no doubt is why "frank" is a Suffolk dialect word for a heron.
