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.

A one-time beer house and brewpub. The full pub license wasn't granted until March 2nd 1960.

It's now residential.

Originally the Rose & Crown was a beer house and was probably started by William Turner, then later run by his son Joseph.

George Daiper was the landlord from 1875 to 1898. The last Victorian independent brewer in Stowmarket, George also ran the Crown Brewery associated with the beer house.

By 1916 the pub was owned by Greene King . It closed in 1992.
