According to A Survey of Suffolk Parish History, Hamblyn House was already an inn by 1508. The large lounge was dominated by a large fireplace.
The parish boundary runs through the building, following the course of an underground stream.
In June/July 1981 edition of Last Orders*** it was reported that Geoff & Ros were then offering beers from Tolly Cobbold, Adnams & Abbot on handpump.
Now a private residence after a short spell as a restaurant.
Owned by St Peters brewery for a while in the late 1990s, during the early days of this local brewery.
