Reopened pubs

As pubs across the county are starting to reopen, we're trying to collate a comprehensive list of those that have reopened or are close to it. Our list can be found on this page.


Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Introduction

Please tell us if you know of any pubs here which have reopened after lockdown.

Mainly comprising arable farmland of the East Anglian plain, Kenton was recorded in Domesday as "Kenetuna". The village has been dry since the Crown closed in 1976.

A tributary of the Deben runs to the east of the village. The church is located in the small village centre with the moated site of Kenton Hall, a 16th century building, half a mile to the south.

Kenton Station was on the Mid-Suffolk line (Middy), which ran from Haughley to Laxfield. The station opened in September 1908 and closed in July 1952. An extension to the line was planned from Kenton through Debenham and Otley, and onward to Westerfield, but only about 2 miles of this was built before it was abandoned. Kenton was one of the largest stations on the line, with two platforms, an engine shed and a number of sidings. The site of the station is now an industrial estate.
