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.

Wilby Swan

Wilby Swan

Closed between 1970 and 2000

Church Rd

grid reference TM 240 720

The Swan was built early in the 15th century, though subsequently altered. Although a date of 1915 has been quoted for the closure of the Swan, the Hoxne licensing records show it still open at least as late as 1968.

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