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.

Burstall Half Moon

Burstall Half Moon

also traded as Half Moon & Star

closed 3rd October 1971

Church Hill

grid reference TM 095 446

Now residential.

Closure date from the Orwell licensing records. Correspondence in the licensing records shows that Sylvia Bloom, who had been Tolly Cobbold's tenant, bought the pub from the brewery in January 1971. Unfortunately she died later that year and the pub was subsequently closed.

The pub can be seen here on an old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
