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.

Norfolk Rd

grid reference TM 468 793

The Sawyers Arms was known locally as the Barking Dicky, because of a landlord who kept a donkey, which brayed continuously. (Dicky is a Suffolk dialect word for a Donkey). It closed in 1957, when the license was transferred to the Plough.

The building has a chequered history; at one time, so a neighbour tells us, it was even a chapel (presumably not at the same time it was a pub).
