In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Woodbridge Prince of Wales

Woodbridge Prince of Wales

also traded as White Swan, Swan

closed 7th October 1925.

13 Market Hill

grid reference TM 270 491

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Prince of Wales's license was issued in 1703.

The license was expired in 1925, as part of a scheme to reduce the number of alcohol licenses. It's now a private residence.

The building dates from the 16th century.

(Note: Compare landlord information with the Swan, Market Hill.)

The 1791 Universal British Directory lists a Swan in Woodbridge, which has been entered under Swan, Market Street, but it could refer to this pub, which was previously called the Swan.

It's shown on this OS town plan of 1881.
