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.

Eye Eight Bells

Eye Eight Bells

closed 31st December 1914

last owner/operator: Adnam's

48 Church St

grid reference TM 148 738

The Eight Bells was closed in 1914 as part of a scheme to reduce the number of "excess" alcohol licenses. A previous attempt to close the pub under this scheme in 1909 had failed (evidently they weren't giving up easily).
