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.


Extra services available here during the Covid-19 lockdown:

10 and 20 litre containers of beer are available for collection or delivery; 'phone the brewery for details.

Their online shop also has other beer options for delivery.

owner Heathpatch

The Mauldon family had originally started brewing in Sudbury by 1795. The White Horse Brewery (with 26 pubs) was subsequently bought by Greene King in 1958 and the brewery was closed (nothing changes!). It was re-opened by Peter Mauldon in 1982 and purchased by the Sims family in 2000. A new 30 barrel plant was built and after a hugely successful 19 years they retired and the business was bought by Heathpatch in September 2019. A local farming based company, with other commercial interests, it is hoped that barley and hops from their local farms can be used in beer production. Over 200 outlets are supplied together with their 3 pubs.
