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.

Brandon Forest

Brandon Forest

Closed about 1992

opened 1970

Thetford Rd

grid reference TL 790 863

A short lived estate pub (it ran for about 20 years) built on the same site as the previous Fox & Hounds.

I used to manage the Forest public house in Brandon back in the late 1980ies; it was a thriving business at that time, so I am very surprised to find out now that it is one of many pubs closed in Brandon. The pub had great support from the USAF and the RAF at that time. Unfortunately I had to leave due to personal reasons, some great friends of mine lived across the road from the pub, (names Jim and Linda) they would have great stories to tell. I now live in southern Ireland but always miss the Forest pub.Catherine O'Sullivan
