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.

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.
