About the Pub

A single, split level single bar with an interesting collection of bric-a-brack. A large outside patio is partly covered and sometimes used for live music. Inside, the pub is dominated by TV screens showing sport.

It can be busy at weekends.

Historic Interest

The Halberd was listed in the 1844 White's Directory with carriers operating from the inn to Aldeburgh, Ashfield, Earl Soham, Framlingham, Grundisburgh, Needham Market, Saxmundham. A report in the Ipswich Journal** on Mar-23 in 1861 when Samuel Webb was landlord states that he was witness in a case of theft of a watch. The current building is believed to date from 1923, but stands on site of an earlier building. Called the Halberd before 1998. The building is thought to date from the 17th century, though it was re-fronted in the 19th; it's said that the cellar contains a bricked-up entrance to a maze of tunnels. Photographs of this pub and more historical information about it can be found at suffolkcamra.co.uk/pubs/pub/528
