Reopened pubs

As pubs across the county are starting to reopen, we're trying to collate a comprehensive list of those that have reopened or are close to it. Our list can be found on this page.


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.

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.

Woodbridge Horse & Groom

Woodbridge Horse & Groom

also traded as Three Horseshoes, Horseshoes, ?Coach & Horses?

closed 4th April 1927

last owner/operator: Cobbold's

68 Cumberland St

grid reference TM 269 487

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Horse & Groom's license was issued in 1853. Whether this was when it was first licensed or when it got a full (ie not just beer) license isn't clear, though the latter seems more probable.

It closed in 1960, when the license was transferred to a new (un-named) pub in Sproughton (possibly the Beagle?). The building is now residential.

The building dates from the 18th century.

The 1891 census records Henry Sawyer at the Coach & Horses, Cumberland Street, which has been assumed to be an alternative name for this pub, although it could be a previously unknown pub or a mistake in the census.

It's shown (though not named) on this OS town plan of 1881.
