About the Pub

Reopened in mid-May 2019 after being closed for nine months

Former coaching inn. The building dates from the 16th century, with an 18th century frontage. According to Alfred Hedges' book, "Inns & Inn Signs of Norfolk & Suffolk, it's claimed that the Fleece was built by a local builder from the excess profits he made from building Boxford rectory. Hedges also tells us that the oak panelling comes from old box pews which prior to 1887 were in the local parish church.

Cask conditioned beers are mainly from Colchester Brewery and local guest ales, lagers and ciders from Suffolk.

Historic Interest

Former coaching inn. For many years a world-famous jazz venue, but the small size of the pub finally forced a move to Kersey Mill in April 2008 (and subsequently to the Stoke by Nayland Club). 2008 - Paul Hazelton. Landlord reported at 5 High Street in 1881 census. Has been reopened in Dec 2011 after being closed since Feb 2011. Now owned by Mill Green Brewery who have refurbished the building.
