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.

Beck Row Rose & Crown

Beck Row Rose & Crown

Closed 2012

82 Holmsley Green, IP28 8AP

grid reference TL 699 779

The Rose & Crown closed approximately 2012 and after some time lying empty was extensively renovated and put on the market as a pub. Given the likely local economic downturn with the planned closure of the airbase, it seemed unlikely anybody would take on a "new" pub in the village and this was confirmed when it was found on a property website, listed as a "former pub [...] now sold".

It has been bought by the community and was opened as the "Rose & Crown Community Hub" in June 2017; essentially a village hall (without a bar).

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about 1903 (interactive map)
