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.

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.

Four-pint flagons are available and your first one, filled with your choice of beer, will cost just £15. Refill your flagon for just £10. Can't decide for the weekend? Maybe buy two!

Beer collections are available on Wednesdays from 6pm to 7pm and on Fridays from 4pm to 6pm.

Please call 01359 232228 to find out the current choice of beers and pre-order ready for collection.

Real Ale is sold here.

A listed building, this popular local sits in the middle of the village a short walk from the railway station. The restaurant, serving good home cooked food, is within the public bar area separated by up-lights from an original wall, with a separate bar for pool and darts. On bank holidays and special occasions live music is performed. The pub holds regular quiz nights and bingo. Accommodation is available.

Although the pub can appear food-oriented, people just there for drinks are welcomed.

It's deservedly a many-times winner of West Suffolk CAMRA's pub of the year and overall Suffolk pub of the year as well.

The pub was originally built to provide drinks for labourers building the railway line and station.
