This riverside pub is about a mile south of the town centre. A mark on the wall shows the level reached by flood waters in 1953. The split level interior is often dominated by diners during busy periods and a separate restaurant extension has helped to make the venue even more popular during weekends. Nearby a foot ferry and foot bridge help to provide access to Walberswick. A large caravan and campsite is located nearby during the summer months.
