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.

Aldeburgh East Suffolk Hotel

Aldeburgh East Suffolk Hotel

also traded as New Inn, Commercial Inn

closed 18th April 1977

opened 1811 (May)

152 High St

grid reference TM 464 564

The building dates from the early 19th century, but was much altered in the 20th.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the East Suffolk's license was issued in 1843. However, the hotel dates back a good while before this; it's recorded that Charles II stayed here in 1668.

The license was surrendered in April 1977, when it was transferred to a private members' club, the Festival Club, which may have been in the same building.

The hotel is shown (but not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. (interactive map)
