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.

Buxhall Crown

Buxhall Crown

Currently closed - may reopen?

Mill Ln, IP14 3DW

grid reference TL 996 577

bar / diner, opened about 1872

Set close to a disused tower mill, with fine views over open countryside. Various old tools decorate the main lounge/dining area. The public bar is a smaller separate room.

The pub had reopened after lockdown, but has had to close again. A note on the door (May 2021) says "Dear customers. After taking Fiona's heart condition into account we have not made plans to reopen the business yet".

We wish Fiona a quick recovery.

A former Greene King pub, now free.

The Crown is shown on this old OS map from about 1903 (interactive map)

Footnote

The crown is a simple sign to show loyalty to the reigning monarch and apart from the commonwealth era (1648-60) has been a pub sign for over 600 years.
