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.

Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.

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.

Whatfield Four Horseshoes

Whatfield Four Horseshoes

also traded as Horseshoes, Five Horse Nails Inn?

closed 1999

The Street, IP7 6QN

grid reference TM 024 464

Now residential.

Until its closure this two bar pub was run as a free house, with one room filled with Napoleonic memorabilia and associated war gaming displays.

The external features date from the 18th century, but the timber frame is much older.

A book called "A Suffolk Childhood" by the late Simon Dewes describes a village pub called the Five Horse Nails Inn? but we are not sure if he is referring to the Four Horseshoes by a different name - reference discovered by Bob Mitchell.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
