Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Yoxford Maid's Head

Yoxford Maid's Head

Closed pre-1874?

High St

grid reference TM 392 692

The building dates from the 16th century. Having studied licensing records from 1874 through to 1967 and found no sign of it, we conclude this pub must have closed before 1874.

The 1910 Rate book lists this building as the Maid's Head, but makes no mention of it being licensed. It's shown as being owned by William Short of Southwold, with Sam Spone in residence.

Charles Wade (of Snowshill Manor fame), lived at the Maid's Head for a while in the late 50's and early 60's (after he had given Snowshill Manor to the National Trust. Other members of his family lived in Elmsley (the big house at the junction of High Street and Strickland Manor Hill).information from Su Fox
