The Weavers Tap opened on Sunday, March 4, replacing the old Silkworm in East Street, to suit the tastes of the “modern pub-lover”.

A launch night was held on Thursday, March 8, and South Suffolk MP James Cartlidge attended to view the new contemporary look at the pub.

Hal Pearson, manager, said: “This is a big boost to what’s been a gradual revolution of the town centre.

“We’re the icon of the millennial British pub - on trend day to night, authentic, sociable and diverse enough to suit all modern pub-lovers tastes.”
