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.

Icklingham Plough Inn

Icklingham Plough Inn

Closed after 2000

opened 1906

The Street (A1101), IP28 6PL

grid reference TL 775 725

Flint faced cottages were converted into the current pub. Moorings to rear dealt with river traffic on its way to Bury. Today the pub is well established for food. Photographs of this pub and more historical information about it can be found at suffolk.camra.org.uk/pub/423

The pub was well respected for its food.

The pub has been closed since at least October 2011. A caller to Lesley Dolphin's BBC Radio Suffolk programme reports that there are plans to renovate and reopen the Plough, but it may be well into the future.

In mid-2017, planning permission to convert the pub to residential use and build more houses on the land was applied for.

The pub is shown but not named, on this old OS map from 1882 (interactive map).
