The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Woolpit Swan

Woolpit Swan

Takeaways available Friday & Saturday evenings. See the pub website for menus.

The Swan Inn building is closed as we cannot comply safely with the government's social distancing recommendations. The Swan is an ancient building with many narrow passageways and was never designed to allow for social distancing.

However, we offer fine hot and cold restaurant food to take away.

We take bookings for "The Window at the Swan" on the release of our menu every Tuesday. We give every customer a safe, five-minute take away slot to collect food on Friday and Saturday evenings. For further information please check out our website www.woolpitswan.co.uk, call us on 01359 240482 or email us at info@woolpitswan.co.uk.

Real Ale is understood not to be sold here.

Parts of the pub date from the 15th century with a carriage arch providing a reminder of earlier (coaching) times. Further extensions & renovations were carried out in 1826 & the present brick front (Woolpit red bricks) was added about then. Occasionally open on Sunday eve for quiz nights.
