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.

Thwaite Cock (High house)

Thwaite Cock (High house)

Closed pre-1840

Norwich Rd

grid reference TM 116 684

According to the Listed Buildings Register, Willow Hall was, at one time, an inn.

The building dates from the 15th century with many 17th century alterations. It was renovated from a state of dereliction in the 1970s.

According to a book called the 'The Norwich Road' by Charles G Harper*** and published 1901 (Harper was a prolific writer and illustrator):

the 'High House' was once a coaching and posting inn ... and now a farmstead ... in former days called the 'Cock'.

The 'Cock,' save that its sign is gone, still remains much as it was, to show a later generation what manner of place the roadside inn was in days of yore.'
