The Marquis of Granby has a wide selection of drinks and bar snacks, as well as traditional pub food at lunchtimes and in the evenings. There are also regional darts and pool teams. The pub has been on the corner of the High Street since 1799. This is a common name for pubs in East Anglia, as the Marquis gave retiring soldiers from his regiment money to set up public houses.
