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.

The Crown is a busy family-run free house and cosy hotel set in the popular antiques centre of Long Melford. Two regular ales and two changing guests together with real cider are served on hand pumps. A high-quality home cooked menu is served in the large bar and separate restaurant. There is a large attractive patio garden for summer dining and drinking. Eleven comfortable bedrooms are available for those wishing to stay and explore this picturesque area.

The riot act was last read in England from the steps of the pub in 1885. Rioters set fire to the building but the occupants were unhurt.

A Victorian brewery was located on the site.
