This two bar pub is located in a 19th century listed building with a large selection of ever changing real ales on handpump, served by the cheerful landlord and staff. Situated close to the railway station on the Bury St. Edmunds to Ipswich line. The main bar offers comfortable seating and a separate area for diners - good home cooked food - whilst a separate public bar is popular for sport on TV and pool. Small outdoor patio area.
Although the pub can appear food-oriented, people just there for drinks are welcomed.
Deservedly a many-times winner of West Suffolk CAMRA's pub of the year and overall Suffolk pub of the year as well.
The pub was originally built to provide drinks for labourers building the railway line and station.
