Hopton Greyhound

Hopton Greyhound

also traded as Cherry Tree

Closed between 1958 and 1976

opened pre-1761

Bury Rd

The Greyhound is shown as late as 1958 on OS maps. By the 1976 sheet it's shown as "old Greyhound", so it evidently closed between those dates.

It isn't clear to us which of the cluster of buildings here was the inn itself, or whether it took them all up.

Bury Road used to be called Greyhound Road, evidently named after the pub.

According to A Survey of Suffolk Parish History, the Cherry Tree (the Greyhound's older name) was recorded as long ago as 1761.

The 1869 Kelly's Directory lists the landlord William Haywood as a brewer. This is currently the only reference we have to brewing on these premises.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1903 (interactive map)
