In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Burstall Half Moon

Burstall Half Moon

also traded as Half Moon & Star

closed 3th 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. larger map
