The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Lilley & family

Brewery Farm, Polstead

Brewing is known to have taken place near Brewers Arms from 1885 or earlier until approximately 1925 by Edward Lilley and other family members.

Reputedly the brewery sold mainly to local farmers and to country houses, though it may have also sold beer to a few pubs (perhaps including the Brewers' Arms itself.)

In 1912 Edward Lilley is listed as a brewer & farmer.

In 1922 Edward Lilley is listed as a brewer.

Sold to Greene King & Sons Ltd in 1925

The brewhouse no longer exists.
