A classic, "olde worlde" charm abounds in this timber framed building. A massive inglenook fireplace can be found in one bar. For some reason, TripAdvisor seems to think the pub is in nearby Bildeston.
Classic, "olde worlde" charm abounds in this timber framed building. A massive inglenook fireplace can be found in one bar. Beers are usually from Adnams, Woodfordes or Nethergate breweries. It also offers good food at reasonable prices.
The building mainly dates from the 16th century (though with wood carvings dating from 1410) and part of it was previously used as a shop. It takes its name from Miss Peacock, the maiden name of the mother of sisters who once ran the establishment.
The "Dickie & Buskin" seems to have been an informal local name for the pub, meaning "Donkey & Basket".
