The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Started brewing early 2008, specialising in high-quality, traditional bottom-fermented lagers, matured over 6 weeks and then filtered before being bottled or kegged (approximately 80% is kegged, the rest bottled).

All beers are filtered but not pasteurised. Despite not being Real Ale, the beers are very flavoursome.

More recently, the brewery has also branched out into Real Ales.

They bought their first pub in February 2012, the Needham Market Rampant Horse. A second pub, the Holbrook Swan was bought in 2018, but both were sold in 2020.

In 2013, production capacity was greatly increased by the installation of a new 8500 litre brew plant.

The brewery is some distance to the north-west of the village at Coddenham Green.
