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.
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.
A spacious settlement lying just off the A12, recorded in Domesday simply as "Wenham". May also be historically listed as Great Wenham.
Nearby Wenham Parva has virtually disappeared except for a church and a fine 13th cent. brick built and fortified Hall - possibly the earliest English brick built building still in use as a residence.
Matthew Hopkins, the notorious Witchfinder General, was born in the parish some time about 1620. His father was the local vicar.
In 1952, a Roman lead coffin encased in a wooden one was found at Priory Farm, along with 3rd-4th century pottery and glass.
