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.

A comfortable Free House & restaurant with integral locally sourced delicatessen shop. The large outdoor seating area is popular with walkers & cyclists in the summer.

There's a toilet accessible to disabled customers.

The name, which as far as we can ascertain is unique, apparently comes from an Elizabethan filled pancake.

To make a Bacon Froize Take eight Eggs well beaten, & a little Cream, & a little Flour, & beat them well together to be like other Batter, then fry very thin slices of Bacon, & pour some of this over, then fry it, & turn the other side, & pour more upon that, so fry it & serve it to the Table.
