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

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

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.

Please mind your head upon entering this delightful, friendly but small rural, thatched pub with very low beams in the main bar. In fact the traditionally tiled floor is actually now much lower (by about a foot) than it once was & is now below ground-level. A more spacious public bar can be noisier & also leads to a games room with pool table & darts. There is always an interesting selection of ever changing ales available & a garden to the rear of the pub offers a nice place to relax on sunny days.

The bus stop is on the main road between Offton and Bildeston.

Opening hours: Sun: 12-10.30 (summer, from April 5th)

May close early depending on trade.…
