An 18th century thatched inn set in attractive gardens. It was originally a staging post on the Colchester to Cambridge road.

It is set on the edge of the quiet picturesque Suffolk village of Withersfield, with a backdrop of open fields and trees. The pub consists of an early 18th Century grade II listed thatched building, with a restaurant, catering for up to 60 people. The newly renovated bar area has an open fire and beams throughout. The pub is filled with memorabilia of the ages and particularly of Sir Donald Bradman, the Australian cricket legend. The restaurant offers breakfast for the business and leisure visitors followed by a traditional lunch menu and afternoon vintage tea service. The pub remains open through the day and the restaurant then provides an evening menu to suit all tastes. The gardens offer secure enclosed lawns and a patio for outside dining. Spacious areas are available for marquees and private functions. There is a large car park with space for all visitors. There are 5 guest rooms in a self-contained, centrally heated building.
