About the Pub

Purchased February 2012 by Calvor's Brewery, of Coddenham Green, who reopened it at the end of March, selling a wide range of locally-sourced food & drink - including of course their own high-quality lagers and real ales. Also listed at Station Yard.

Historic Interest

A timber framed building with an old beamed bar which has been a pub (on & off) since 1544. Before the railway station was built all the land between the pub & river was known as "camping land" - this was the pitch for the popular ball game Campball - a precursor to football dating back to at least 17th cent. Campball was described as a "friendly kind of fight" - a bloody & murderous practice with no restrictions on numbers of players & few rules. It generally degenerated into a brawl. Today local football is still played on part of the former camping land. Photographs of this pub and more historical information about it can be found at suffolkcamra.co.uk/pubs/pub/745
