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.

A lively town-centre pub based around a central bar.

Since September 2019 it has been run by the same management team as that of the Framlingham Castle Inn.

The date on the wall, 1707, is believed to be when major alterations were made to the pub (possibly undertaken to reduce the first floor overhang). The building itself probably originates from the previous century or earlier. It's one of the town's most ancient inns; one of only 24 to appear on a town assessment of 1689. The building exterior is a Grade 2 listed.
