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.

The building dates from the early-mid 19th century.

The Unicorn was formerly owned by the nearby (still standing) Catchpole Brewery. Adjacent to the hotel were houses for both the brewer and brewery employees (now converted into restaurants).

The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
