Mid Anglia's newest Community Pub. Also popularly known as the "Low House", and bought from Adnams by local people in 2018, this timeless, multi-roomed & thatched building is a classic pub which is always worth a visit. The main room features listed high back settles set around a small fireplace, whilst the beer is served on gravity direct from a small tap room to rear. A separate dining room offers an interesting menu of locally sourced food & including a Sunday roast but NOT on Sunday evening. An enclosed garden & patio to rear is also available. Accommodation available in an outside building.
The pub can be difficult to find - just walk through churchyard and exit via lower street access, or use our navigation feature.
The building dates from the 16th century, with an 18th century extension.
In May 2018 the pub was taken over by members of the community, securing its future.
