A Wayside Tavern tells the story of a Suffolk drinking place from the end of the Roman occupation of Britain, until the present day. The Roman veteran, crippled and left behind, worshipped Mithras, so the place became known as the One Bull and down through the centuries it became a clearing house for contraband, a miniature Hell Fire Club, a fashionable hotel, a mere pub. Across the yard, was the church of St Cerdic, king and martyr, who fought the Danes and was famous for the miracles performed at his shrine. His remains were lost in the Reformation but something remained. Inside the inn, despite all external changes, one passion raged - to retain possession.

    " If you enjoyed the Red Violin you might like this. Begins in the 4th Century and continues through to "present" times. Same location and the story of the peoples' lives who pass through. "

    " This was a wonderful read. I love the mix of fiction with history in this story about a wayside tavern. The charaters in this story just keep me wanting to find out what would happen next to them. I would recommend this for anyone that loves fiction mix with some history. "

    " A classic Norah Lofts. Less interesting in the later chapters, but a good read. "

    " I have to say that I resent the cover here. It's packed full of history and this cover makes it look like a bodice ripper. "
