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.

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".
