Location

Ixworth is a village and civil parish in the Borough of St Edmundsbury in the county of Suffolk. It is 6 miles (9.7 km) north-east of Bury St Edmunds and 9 miles (14 km) south-east of Thetford on the A143 road to Diss. The parish has a population of 2,177. St Mary's Church lies just west of High Street. The church dates from the late 14th century with a late 15th century tower.The village contains a number of other listed buildings, many on the High Street, some of which have medieval elements. A variety of local services remain in the village, including shops, a post office as well as a village hall, doctor's surgery, and a retained fire station and police station sharing the same building.
Ixworth is served by rural bus routes and is on the National Express London to Great Yarmouth coach route.

As well as being the largest of the 2 pubs in the village, a lot of trade for the Pykkerell comes from the surrounding villages such as – Troston, Bardwell, Stanton, Fakenham Magna, Ixworth Thorpe, Pakenham. The site also benefits from events held locally at Euston House, home of the Duke of Grafham.

There are large groups of walkers and ramblers at the weekend – the long and short Pakenham walk is very popular. The site also benefits from trade from Honington Air Base which is just 4 miles away
