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.

This is a scattered settlement based around a number of greens. The ancient Bradfield woods have been coppiced since the 13th century and are now managed by Suffolk Wildlife Trust. Nearby Monks' Wood is a deer park. Bradfield in general was recorded in Domesday as "Bradefelda". Bradfield St George appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Munkebradfeld".

A smock mill stood on the Felsham Road until it was demolished in 1943.
