Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

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
