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.

The pub appears in licensing records up to 1967 (the latest available) and it closed in 1969, according to a caller to Lesley Dolphin's BBC Radio Suffolk programme.

It was bought after closure by actor Stratford Johns, who lived here until his death in 2002.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
