  The Norwich Pub Survey of 1986, compiled by the Norwich Society, in association with Norwich City Council, assessed the house:-  
 
Approx date of building Listed Quality Pre-war fittings surviving
External Internal
Late 18th C Yes 6 5 No
Looks as it it could have been two houses.
Used to have two stables but one has been pulled down.
Was a posting inn and staging post.
Additional toilet block added and part of the lounge bar is an addition at rear.
Corner entrance blocked and what was possibly a corner entrance hall has now been included in the front room bar.
Now two rooms round one bar, plus a pool room quite separate to the right of the entrance.
Windows and lights over doors of particular interest - presumably Georgian.
Horse brasses and mugs might be genuine.
Used to have a jug & bottle section at the entrance.
