Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Wickhambrook Red House

Wickhambrook Red House

Closed between 1916 and 1958?

A143

grid reference TL 762 547

The Red House was also known as the Blood Tub, where "you could get a pint of strong beer and a thick ear for 2d". The Red House has sometimes erroneously been reported as being in Denston.

The pub is shown on OS maps at least as late as 1904, but has gone by the 1958 sheet, so presumably closed between 1916 (the most recent directory entry found) and 1958. It was demolished about 2000.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
