Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Halesworth Golden Ball

Halesworth Golden Ball

closed 20th July 1954

opened pre-1874

85 Chediston St

grid reference TM 383 774

The Golden Ball was originally earmarked for closure in 1909 under a scheme aimed at reducing the number of "excess" alcohol licenses, but it was decided not to close the pub then after all. In the end, it lasted until 1954.

It has been suggested that the numbering scheme may have changed and in fact our unidentified pub was in fact the Golden Ball. We need more information before this can be confirmed.
