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.

The Street, IP7 7NQ

A Grade II listed one-time free house, believed to date from mediaeval times. It is situated midway between Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds. The pub had a warm and friendly atmosphere and catered for all types of functions. To the left of the entrance was a separate public bar with a pool table, dart board and other pub games. Straight ahead was the lounge, dining room, and restaurant.

B&B rooms were opened mid-2010.

In May 2015, planning permission for conversion to residential use was granted on appeal. The impression was that pub would close as soon as a buyer has been found, but it was found de-signed and evidently only operating as a B&B when visited in November 2015, while still apparently for sale.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. …
