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.

The Norfolk Chronicle refers to a Bury pub called the Wool Packet in August 1781. Was this the same as the Woolpack?

The Woolpack name may be a reference to the earlier inn listed in the Meat Market on this site?

My mother in law's parents ran the Everard's hotel. They were called Tom and Lucy Butcher. Regards Nige Cryer

Today the building is used as retail premises. It's reported that when the current Pizza Hut was being set up, no fewer than seventeen wells were found behind the premises.
