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.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 05 Oct in 1855 states that :

At Lavenham, all the household furniture, very superior & nearly-new Brewing Plant of 5 coombs steep, fitted up regardless of expense; 1000 gallons of very superior OLD BEER, malt mill etc etc, the property of Mr Chas. TURNER…In the Brew House, nearly new brewing copper, with furnace & lid, for 5 coombs, oak mash tub, with false bottom, gyre tub, wort tubs, copper jet, mash stirrer & hop strainer; In the Cellar, 1 store cask, 150 gallons, 6 ditto, 350 gallons each, 7 pipes, 3 two-hogshead casks, hogshead cask & 4 smaller casks. The casks have been made within the last 4 years by that very superior maker, Walby, Lavenham, and are of the best English Oak. The above will be sold without reserve, in consequence of the house being purchased for a private residence.
