NEEDHAM MARKET HIGH STREET (WEST) TM 0855
3/92 Nos.95 and 97 (Bugs Bar)
House, and restaurant with accommodation above. Built as one 3-cell house in early or mid C16. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed and pebble-dashed.
Plaintiled roof with axial chimneys of red brick, and flat roofed C19 dormers with small-pane casements. At 1st storey are C19 sash windows with large panes. At ground storey No.95 has C18/early C19 mullioned and transomed window, and Bug's Bar has a pair of flat-roofed splayed bays with similar windows. C19 6-panelled entrance doors. A carriage entrance at extreme left, beyond the original service cell, has a pair of C18/C19 boarded gates.
Timber-framing of early C16 type is fully exposed within Bug's Bar: heavy unchamfered floor joists, and an altered open fireplace of C17/C18 which is intruded but reuses a C16 cambered and ogee-moulded lintel. The upper floor was originally long-wall jettied towards the street; in C18/C19 the lower wall framing was moved forwards to give a flush wall-line, but evidence for window and door positions remains.
