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.

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.
