Important Covid information

If all goes according to plan, the first tranche of pubs (those that are able to serve drinkers outdoors) may be able to reopen on April 12th. Though of course, in a situation like this, nothing is guaranteed. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those known to be planning to reopen as soon as permitted are listed on this page.

Introduction

Please tell us if you know of any pubs here ready to reopen when outdoors service is permitted.

A village just west of the river Brett, recorded in Domesday as "Prestetune". It appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Preſton".

The village hall is housed in the old village school.

Priory farm was formerly owned by Trinity Priory in Ipswich and Preston Hall was owned by the Earls of Oxford for a long while. In the early 17th century it was the seat of Robert Ryce Esq, a great preserver of local antiquities. The hall dates from the 16th century, but is on the site of an earlier hall, of which no evidence or information remains.

The parish includes the hamlets of Rooksey Green and Whelp Street.
