Historic Interest

It was reported in the Suffolk Free Press (September 20th 1899) that: "The annual harvest horkey given by Mr W. S. Goodchild for the Mill Hill farm workmen took place at the Black Lion Inn on Saturday night the 16th of September when a capital dinner of roast beef, mutton, baked pudding was provided, ample justice was done to the meal, the party numbered 26 to dinner & 40 to tea, each workmen having the privilege of inviting his wife or sweetheart so the fair sex were well represented, the chair was taken by H.Copsey (the lord of the harvest) & the vice chair by F.Brown, the chairman spoke a few words about the fairness of the weather & the splendid crops, he remarked that although the yield was very good for the master it was fairly good for the men, the health of Mr & Mrs Goodchild was heartily drunk & the evening was spent in song." The building dates from the 16th century. Photographs of this pub and more historical information about it can be found at
