Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

First mentioned in records of 1728 when it was the Adam & Eve. It became the George & Dragon about 1795. It closed in 1904 and the license was transferred to the Ingate.

A pub appears at this spot on the 1884 OS town plan. This seems likely to have been the George & Dragon. If you can confirm or refute this, please let us know.
