Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Naughton Wheelhouse

formerly Wheeler's Inn, Wheel inn

Due to the government announcement of January 4th, pubs are currently not permitted to sell alcohol to take away, though they are permitted to deliver it. 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.

We think takeaway beer is available, but don't have details.

Real Ale is sold here.

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.…
