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.

Now a private residence, the pub was built late in the 18th century.

It reportedly stood "opposite the vicarage"; our photo and map location show what we think was the pub - if you can confirm or refute this, please let us know.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Brickmakers Arms' beerhouse license was issued in 1863. License renewal was refused in 1909.

An earlier Brickmakers Arms's beerhouse was located nearby at Drybridge Hill corner.
