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.

Mendham Lion

Mendham Lion

also traded as Red Lion

Closed between 1970 and 2000

The Street

grid reference TM 270 830

Although there are references to the Lion having closed in 1915, the Hoxne licensing records show it still open at least as late as 1968. It may have remained open after that year, but we have no concrete information.

The pub is shown on this old OS map of about 1903 (interactive map)
