In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Laxfield General Wolfe

Laxfield General Wolfe

closed 16th April 1959.

last owner/operator: Lacon's

High St

The General Wolfe was built late in the 16th or early in the 17th century, probably as a farmhouse.

Although 1952 has been quoted as a closure date, the Hoxne licensing records show it to have closed in 1959.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
