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.

The inn was located adjacent to Christchurch (on the Ipswich side). In 1607 it had 3 rooms, a brew house, 3 rooms to the rear (the backhouse), a stable, a 2 bay hay-house, a garden and private lane (leading to a house). Sometime soon after Thomas and Mary Love inherited the property in 1679 the house was destroyed by fire and then substantially rebuilt.

Most of the property was destroyed by a German bomb which was dropped on the town in 1942. The site is now used as a car-park.
