bar / restaurant

Classic, "olde worlde" charm abounds in this timber framed building. A massive inglenook fireplace can be found in one bar. Beers usually from Adnams, Woodfordes or Nethergate breweries. Also offering good food at reasonable prices.

For some reason, TripAdvisor seems to think the pub is in nearby Bildeston.

The building mainly dates from the 16th century (though with wood carvings dating from 1410) and part of it was previously used as a shop. It takes its name from Miss Peacock, the maiden name of the mother of sisters who once ran the establishment.[1]

The "Dickie & Buskin" seems to have been an informal local name for the pub, meaning "Donkey & Basket".
