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.

Redlingfield Crown

Redlingfield Crown

Closed 1966

Green Ln

grid reference TM 189 712

The Eye licensing record seems to indicate that the pub closed in 1967, though the handwriting is so bad this was not 100% certain. However, a caller to BBC Radio Suffolk's Lesley Dolphin programme confirmed that it actually shut in 1966.

The Crown has been variously reported at Crown Street (in the 1861 census) and Horham Road (in the 1881 census).

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