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.

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. larger map
