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.

This former Inn and Posting House was destroyed by a fire on January 1st 1922.

The inn is also reported as being at Market Hill. In the 16th century this inn (then called the Crown) formed three sides around a great courtyard and was frequently used for mayoral banquets.

It was also reported at 38 King Street from at least 1871 until at least 1916.

It was formerly a Commercial Hotel & Posting House and billiard rooms.

The hotel is shown here on an old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
