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.

Stowmarket Unicorn

Stowmarket Unicorn

Closed October 2010

opened 1861

last owner/operator: Admiral Taverns

24 Lime Tree Place, IP14 1BT

grid reference TM 052 581

The Unicorn was a friendly local Victorian back street pub that was a popular games venue.

It closed in October 2010. Despite a new tenant earlier that year turning the pub round, the PubCo's greed saw more quick profit in selling the site for housing.

Originally only licensed as a beerhouse. The Stow licensing records show that the Unicorn only got a full license on May 2nd 1962.

In January 1897 Greene King paid £3500 for the Unicorn, "an unheard of price" due to increased competition among breweries [taken from "Greene King" by Richard G. Wilson]
