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.

Ilketshall St Margaret Greyhound

Ilketshall St Margaret Greyhound

Closed between 1951 and 1957?

Low St, St Margaret's

grid reference TM 348 853

The former Greyhound is now residential and called the Forge - a reminder that some of the previous landlords had two jobs - innkeeper & blacksmith. The forge itself was behind the pub, as can be seen on this 1884 OS map.

The pub is shown on OS maps at least as late as 1951, but appears to be gone by the 1957 (and subsequent) sheets, so presumably closed between these dates.

It can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
