Popular corner local established in 1867 and became a public house in 1885. Major alterations and mock Tudor facade added in the 1920s. Closed in May 2010 and reopened five months later after completion of the first part of a £300,000 overhaul and modernisation scheme. The large, refurbished main bar/lounge has a fireplace and TV, and detailed posters about the history of the pub and the New England area. The right hand room has a serving hatch and is used for pool and darts. The old function room at the back and part of the car park is due to be turned into flats and a beer garden. Reopened in November 2012 after another period of closure and quickly became a success. Hosted a beer festival at Easter 2013. Live music on Friday nights and quiz on Sunday nights. Presented with a CAMRA Gold Award in August 2013 for its good range of well kept real ales. These vary but often include LocAle ones: Grainstore, Hopshackle, Tydd Steam etc. Six handpumps; four on real ales and two on ciders.
