Wickham Road, Thornham Magna
Attractive, rambling, thatched building dating from about 1150. Today much of the internal space is used for dining but the bar still offers up to four beers. Much woodwork is exposed. A well is located in one part of the bar. Disabled toilet. Local legend tells of a tunnel running from here to the nearby Stoke Ash White Horse, though we understand no evidence exists for it. In 2008 at the age of 19, Tom Parkhurst took over the pub & was then thought to be the youngest publican in the county.

- Walnut Tree
An 18th cent. roadside inn, with parts dating back to the 16h century. Re-opened 1st March 2017. Formerly the Bucks Head, this reopened on 1 March 2017 as a 'veggie pub'. It has been freshened up inside but is still very much traditional pub ambience with real ales, and having a drink at the bar without eating is no problem. The vegetarian (& vegan) menu was transferred and adapted from the owners' previous place The Red Lion ('Veggie Red Lion') at Great Bricett near Wattisham (about 6m south of Stowmarket).
