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.

Earl Soham was set up behind the Victoria pub in Earl Soham in 1984 and continued there until 2001 when the brewery moved 200 metres down the road.

In 2013, with no possibility of expanding the then brewery site, the operation was moved to nearby Debenham, where it shares a site with Cliff Quay Brewery, which is part-owned by Earl Soham.

The Victoria and the Station in Framlingham both sell the beers on a regular basis and, when there is spare stock, it is supplied to local free houses and as many beer festivals as possible.

Brandeston Gold is brewed using barley grown for the brewery at a farm in Brandeston and locally grown hops.
