Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.
Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.
If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

When travelling north east along the Hoxne Road pass Syleham Village Hall on your right. The former White Horse public house can then be seen on your left before the Wingfield Road is reached. It is easily identified from the road by the pub name still displayed on the lamp over the door.
Now used as a private residence.information supplied by John Alborough
The building is thought to have been built in the 16th or 17th century as a farmhouse.

Mr S H Beales said his firm had bought the White Horse from Messrs Lacon. They intended moving Sparrow, who was the licensee of the Black Horse, into the house within the next week or so. They would then close down the Black Horse and surrender the license.Evening Star, October 6th 1955**
