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.

Much of the space is taken up with a popular restaurant, with all day breakfast available anytime open and Sunday roasts. Bar area close to the main entrance. Two hand pumps. Regular Live music on Fridays with open Mic once a month (first Friday).

After 25 years closed, the Ark reopened on Thursday November 2nd 2017.

In the later years of its original incarnation, the Ark had a reputation as a place where unusual (for the time) Real Ales were to be had. Many beer-lovers from Ipswich would make the trek here for something different.

The pub's name reputedly dates back to an earlier building which was constructed out of timbers from an old ship.
