Important Covid information

If all goes according to plan, the first tranche of pubs (those that are able to serve drinkers outdoors) may be able to reopen on April 12th. Though of course, in a situation like this, nothing is guaranteed. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those planning to reopen when permitted are listed on this page.

Framlingham White Lyon

Framlingham White Lyon

also traded as Lion Inn?

Closed post-1912?

opened pre-1686

Market Hill

grid reference TM 285 634

A document at Suffolk Record Office lists a "White Lion as possibly having stood in Church Street in 1912.

According to A Survey of Suffolk Parish History, a deed of 1686

describes The Griffin Inn as lying between the Crown Inn and the Lion Inn Yard.

It seems reasonable to assume that the Lion Inn was an older name for this establishment, thus giving us an idea of its age.
