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.

Sudbury Olde Bull

Sudbury Olde Bull

also traded as Bull Inn

Closed after 2000
Closed around 2013 and later converted to a restaurant.

35-36 Church St, CO10 2BL

grid reference TL 868 409

Currently (April 2013) closed. Though we understand a potential tenant has shown an interest in reopening the pub. If you hear it's been reopened, please let us know. The Bull was apparently de-licensed in the 1950s; we don't know when it reopened.

The Olde Bull is a mid 16th-17th century building with 18th century additions at the west-end. Known as the Bull hotel, it was once known for bull baiting in the yard of the inn.

When it closed in 1959, the license was transferred to the nearby Spread Eagle.

It's shown (though unnamed) on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
