We hope this will change before too long, so still list Suffolk pubs intending to sell takeaway drinks. Food continues to be available for takeaway as before.

Takeaways are available - 'phone the pub for info.

Home of the King's Head brewery since 1996. A single bar with large cosy inglenook fireplace. The large carved timbers indicate its history as part of a larger complex dating from around 1530. A friendly drinking house atmosphere has evolved with food available at the weekend only. A fully enclosed rear garden with a covered patio area, lawns and play equipment. Late May bank holiday beer festival is established and popular.

It has a long established reputation for live music. Every Wednesday is busking night and there is live music most weekends.

The pub has a toilet for disabled customers.

Built in the 14th century as a wool warehouse, the building was converted into a pub in the 16th century.
