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.

Clare Ship

Clare Ship

Closed unknown era

22-23 Callis St

grid reference TL 770 456

The Ship was built in the 17th century as three cottages. At some unknown later date, an external staircase was added, leading to upstairs drinking rooms which were used by local sheep farmers. Ship is probably a corruption of "sheep" (due to the way sheep is pronounced in Suffolk dialect).

It's now used as a shop (Ship Stores) and guesthouse.
