Visits Details

14:45 - 16:20 An unexpected request for a lift led to a visit to this pub, which I last went to in 2003. Three separate visits in all to fit around our passengers appointment. Very friendly welcome and good conversation with the Landlady and the customers each time. The opening hours are somewhat restricted, which was not reflected on What Pub, prompting yet another feedback form completion.

The pub is found in Bedfield, Suffolk, IP13 7JJ.

Thatched pub tucked away in the Suffolk countryside. Two rooms. The public bar has tiled floors, beams and settle seating. There is also a bar billiards table. The pub gets two mentions in the excellent book Played at the Pub by Arthur Taylor. One for Devil Among The Tailors, and secondly for Suffolk Caves. This is quoits based game but the rings are thrown into circular cavities rather than over pegs. The Crown is thought to be the last pub left with the game.

We have visited this pub once, seen 2 different beers and tried 1 of them.
