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.
Closed between 1884 and 1903?.

The Crown is shown on OS maps at least as late as 1884, but disappears from the 1903 sheet onwards, so presumably closed between those dates.
According to A Survey of Suffolk Parish History, the Crown dates back at least to 1723.
The pub can be seen here on the 1884 OS map
Some of the later landlord/resident entries may actually have been mis-assigned to this pub, as they seem to have occurred since its probable closure date.
