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.

Mill Rd, IP19 8PP

grid reference TM 402 775

Pub's website indicates that it is a former pub. Now seems to be a licensed B&B only, although it has been found for sale on the internet. When a pub, there was a large bar area with sofas and armchairs and a restaurant that was separate from the bar area. Giggler cider (locally produced) was available in bottles.

Reopened on Monday 29th July 2013, after 5 years of being closed, with a gigantic local turn out. The building was fully restored with a 55% increase in size.

After two years, they gave up on being a pub and the building is now just a "licensed B&B". However, at the beginning of December 2016 the local press reported that planning permission for conversion to purely a B&B had been refused. We await further developments with interest.
