CAMRA Ipswich & East Suffolk branch.


last updated 01/04/2016

This 16th century pub had three bars and a disabled toilet.

According to Alfred Hedges' book, "Inns and Inn Signs of Norfolk and Suffolk", the name refers not to the number of bells in the local church, but to "the activities of the local team of handbell ringers".

It has been closed since March 20th 2013. A local campaign was organised to buy the pub for the village, but this failed to raise enough money.

The pub is now Casa Mexico, a shop selling meso-American trinkets.
