In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

A popular riverside single bar pub which features live music and good food prepared on the premises.

There's a beer garden, live music including Jazz on Sundays & Folk, Blues & Punk sessions - see the pub's website for details.

Suffolk song writers play here monthly.

The pub is located close to the impressive (Grade 2 listed) Felaw Malting buildings - one the largest traditional malting sites ever built in East Anglia (built in 1904 and 1911 respectively). Malting finished here in 1981. Now the two buildings are used as offices. The malting buildings replaced the even earlier St Peter's workhouse (erected in 1836-7) to accommodate up to 400 inmates.
