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.

Walton Feathers

Walton Feathers

also traded as Three Feathers

Closed early 2013

opened 1712

last owner/operator: Punch

231 High St, IP11 9DT

grid reference TM 295 356

Found boarded-up and for sale, May 2013.

Built late 16th - early 17th century.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Feathers' license was issued in 1842. This probably refers to its full (ie not just beer) license, since it's apparently been trading as a pub since 1712 (according to an Ipswich Star report).

In 2013 the building was sold by Punch Taverns to developers Roseberry Property Development Co Ltd who had their design for conversion to residential use approved by local council in March 2014. It has since been converted to residential use.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
