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

Pub(s) known to have reopened after lockdown (or close to reopening)

Please tell us if you know of any pubs which have reopened after lockdown that we don't list here.

At the centre of this village is the four arched, late medieval pack-horse bridge crossing the river Kennett. Horses are in the blood of the village, with strong links to nearby Newmarket. The parish was a "peculiar" under the control of the Archbishop of Canterbury's Peculiar Deanery of Bocking and not the Diocese of Norwich like most of the county.

The packhorse bridge dates from the 15th century and is one of the oldest in the country. It's long been bypassed by a ford, though the stream is generally dry, so you're unlikely to get your feet wet.

An Admiralty shutter station stood close to Warren Towers at the boundary with Newmarket (TL 664 639). It was part of a chain of such stations relaying signals between the Admiralty in London and the fleet based at Great Yarmouth during the Napoleonic wars.

Moulton was recorded in Domesday as Muletuna.
