About the Pub

Small friendly bar with an open fire and many historic features. Several other wood paneled rooms mainly used for dining. Very large garden to rear of premises. On the other side of the road is a Victorian pumping station close to the remains of a lock on the River Stour, which is the county boundary and was once navigable from Manningtree (in Essex) to Sudbury. Trading under current ownership (since Jan 2013) after renovation work was completed and new signage was fitted. Now offering two to three cask ales & the odd beer on gravity (direct from the cellar) and over 75 interesting bottle conditioned beers - the list will grow.

Historic Interest

The building is part of a historic former coaching inn dating from about 1520. The original medieval structure was at least 3 times larger than the remaining and included a second wing located on the far side of car-park which was eventually destroyed by fire. The inn also once had stabling to rear of premises for about 200 horses. George II once stayed overnight here on route to London. Photographs of this pub and more historical information about it can be found at suffolkcamra.co.uk/pubs/pub/926
