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.

Now residential, the pub was built in the 17th century.

Stuart Forbes was stationed at RAF Bentwaters twice, in the late 1960s and in the early 1970s. The pub was one of his favourites (if not most favourite). Then it was a Whitbread pub and the landlord was Jim Finbow, a real gentleman. It was painted green and Saturday nights were special. Some of the patrons sang Suffolk songs. All the patrons were older, never young ones and they loved to tell WW2 stories.
