About the Pub

First floor bar in this historic building that J D Wetherspoon's opened in June 2012. This pub serves real cider as recognised by CAMRA. Holds the Cask Marque Award for serving quality real ale.

Historic Interest

Built in 1861/2 for £7000, the Corn Exchange was originally a provisions market. It was the second such building – the first (1836) was too small. Over the years it has been a centre for commerce (as a corn exchange), a roller skating rink & stage for various events, such as wrestling & dances. It was listed (Grade II) in 1952. In the 1960s it was proposed that the Corn Exchange should be demolished & replaced by shops. After much debate a compromise was reached in 1969 when a developer was selected to insert a new first floor into the hall, just below the level of the capitals (now encased in wooden shuttering) on the cast iron columns. In more recent times it has been used for events such as wedding receptions, parties, concerts & for 17 years hosted the East Anglian beer festival (1992-2010).
