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.

grid reference TM 049 587

Listed at number 25 in the 1909 Rates book, this pub has also been reported at number 27.

An earlier beerhouse on this site, owned by Robert Worledge was destroyed by fire in June 1885 together with several other local properties. It was subsequently rebuilt by Oliver John Parker and soon after occupied by James Lillistone. It was called the Phoenix from about 1890. The pub was also known as the "hole in the wall" due to its small size.
