Bug's Bar is to be found within the hotel.
A classic 15th century timber framed building which was being used as an inn by the early 16th century. It's family oriented, with a lively bar. It was once a calling house for pilgrims on their way to Bury St Edmunds and was earlier called the Bull Inn; it's believed to have once been named Boule House.
The hotel closed suddenly and without warning on May 19th 2017. We noticed on October 13th that the hotel was again open.
