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.
Now a hamlet of Mildenhall, this is believed to have been an important Bronze Age site over 3500 years ago. Then early farmers occupied timber houses during the sumer months (possibly migrating south during the winter) and may have made ritual offerings into the river Lark. In 1942 a hoard of silverware was discovered near the site of a Roman villa. Today it is known as the Mildenhall Treasure and comprises of tableware, pictorial platters and early Christian baptismal spoons which can be seen in the British Museum.
The Fish & Duck was technically within this parish, but is listed under Burnt Fen as it was in the area known by that name.
Also see Beck Row, Burnt Fen, Holywell Row, Kenny Hill and Mildenhall. We have so far been unable to find a map showing the boundary of West Row, so only the Mildenhall parish boundary appears on our map.
The 1844 White's Directory lists Thomas Balls, H. Girdlestone and Morley Taylor as beer house keepers. The hamlet then had a population of 1120.
The 1855 White's Directory lists Jacob Morley as a beer house keeper.
In 1865 James Curtis (farmer) is listed as a beer retailer.
