Important Covid information

If all goes according to plan, the first tranche of pubs (those that are able to serve drinkers outdoors) may be able to reopen on April 12th. Though of course, in a situation like this, nothing is guaranteed. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those known to be planning to reopen as soon as permitted are listed on this page.

Eye Crown

Eye Crown

closed 28th November 1942

31 Magdalen St

grid reference TM 142 737

The pub building is thought to date from the 18th century.

The Crown closed in 1942 "for the duration [of the war]". It appears not to have reopened afterwards; in 1946 the license was transferred to the Halesworth Triple Plea, which until then only had a beerhouse license.

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