Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Gazeley Carpenters' Arms

Gazeley Carpenters' Arms

Closed between 1904 and 1938?

Mill Rd

grid reference TL 719 643

The Carpenters' Arms is shown at this location on the 1884 OS map. It appears on OS maps at least as late as 1904, but can't be seen on sheets from 1938 onwards. The latest directory entry we've found was in 1922, so presumably it closed some time between 1922 and 1938?

The building was demolished in 2017, having apparently stood empty for some years. Don't be fooled by the fact that the new Carpenters Close is opposite the Chequers; the pub was actually about 300m north of this, opposite Moulton Road.

It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
