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.

closed 9th December 1974

last owner/operator: Tolly Cobbold

73 Handford Rd

grid reference TM 155 445

Comparing the building in the early 21st century with the old drawing, it would seem that the pub was either extensively remodelled or perhaps re-built at some time.

After many years of being used as a storage facility for a local building supplies company it was demolished at the end of November 2011.

It's listed at 59 in 1871 & 1881.

The pub is shown on this old OS town plan of 1883.
