The pub is found in Thetford, Norfolk, IP24 2AZ.

The old part of this hotel is a Wealden Hall House with a jettied upper-storey. The end timber beam on the outside has the remains of ancient nails where town notices were posted. The single bar is heavily beamed with boarded and carpeted flooring. There is a small area behind the chimney breast and two further tables in an alley behind the bar. This was formerly beyond the exterior as can be seen by the exposed joists above. The rear of the hotel is a modern extension. The hotel was used by the cast of Dad's Army during filming and the bar is called Pike's Bar. Three handpumps.

We have visited this pub once, seen 3 different beers and tried 1 of them.
