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.

Rickinghall Superior Hamblyn House

Rickinghall Superior Hamblyn House

closed 1997

opened 16th century

The Street, IP22 1BN

grid reference TM 046 757

According to A Survey of Suffolk Parish History, Hamblyn House was already an inn by 1508.

The large lounge was dominated by a large fireplace.

The parish boundary runs through the building, following the course of an underground stream.

In the June/July 1981 edition of Last Orders*** it was reported that Geoff & Ros were then offering beers from Tolly Cobbold, Adnams & Abbot on handpump.

It's now a private residence after a short spell as a restaurant.

The pub was owned by St Peter's brewery for a while in the late 1990s, during the early days of this local brewery.
