- Ivy House
The original thatched pub has its origins in mediaeval times, and the beamed core of the building was a brewhouse in times gone by. Now, with alterations in the early 17th century & further alterations in Victorian times, the village has a charming local. Inside the small bar leads off to several dining areas, all comfortably furnished and tastefully decorated. The hosts have established a reputation for good homemade food with a menu that has dishes from Asia and the Mediterranean as well as English dishes.
- White Hart
This is a free house in the middle of a thriving village, opposite the church. The building dates from the late 17th or early 18th century, with subsequent alterations leaving it with one large bar area with comfortable seating. There is a large open fire at one end of the room. The bar has a small library behind for those wishing to linger. There is apparently some royal connection in the past with the White Hart being seen as the symbol of Richard II

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 was transferred and adapted from the owners' previous place The Red Lion ('Veggie Red Lion') at Great Bricett near Wattisham (S of Stowmarket).
