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.

Formerly a two bar pub, which had one bar for drinking, whilst the other was mainly for dining and had a cheering, open fire in winter. The main drinking area also had a pool table and a comfortable mix of furniture and decorative items. It was easy to relax and feel at home here.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about 1903 (interactive map)
