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.

Bury St Edmunds Admirals Head

Bury St Edmunds Admirals Head

closed 1908

56 Long Brackland

grid reference TL 853 648 (approximate location)

The Admiral's Head has been demolished.

Long Brackland used to stretch along what's now St John Street, so the pub may have been there. The building we think it was seems to have been replaced by a relatively new building.

The pub is listed at number 56 by 1888 and number 63 by 1891 (Not present numbering). In 1901 it is listed before 64 & 65 Long Brackland, Bakers Terrace and 66 & 67 Long Brackland, which suggests that it was almost opposite the Britannia, on the south side of Long Brackland.
