The Bear was run by the same family between 1922 and 2016, when it was acquired by Old Cannon brewery.
It has been updated without spoiling a very traditional building with two bars and separate dining room (for residential use only at present). There is easy access from the A14 as the pub was originally on the main Ipswich to Cambridge road.
Where possible they use locally sourced ingredients, and all meals are cooked in house. Takeaway Fish & Chips are available on Friday evenings 6-7pm.
Beer served through handpulls
Separate public bar
Traditional pub games available
Bus stop nearby (see public transport tab for details)
Railway station about 1.7 mile away (see public transport tab for details)
