In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

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.

Kenny Hill Labourer's Rest

Kenny Hill Labourer's Rest

also traded as Travellers Rest

Closed 1930s.

Mildenhall Drove

grid reference TL 664 802

An old OS map shows the inn at this location.

The original building is still there on a 8 acre plot currently run as a small holding / Nursery by my parents.

The original name of the pub is the Labourers Rest. It was an ale house on the Manor of Mildenhall for the farm workers.

It was sold off at some point and then became the Travellers Rest. I believe it was owned by a brewery called Cutlick & Harlick (or something like that).

I believe it closed in the 1920's / 30's. It was purchased by my grandfather in the 1930's and is now owned by my parents and is now called The Rest.

The current building looks quite modern as it as almost totaly rebuilt in the 1970's. I can remember when I was a boy the house had all the original doors and windows. It had 4 outside doors.…
