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.

Barrow Crown

Barrow Crown

Closed between 1884 and 1903?

opened pre-1723

Bury Rd

grid reference TL 765 634

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 1883 OS map (">interactive map).
