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.

We know very little about this pub, though this auction in 1856 (as listed below) may have resulted in it ceasing to be a pub?

The Listed Buildings Register confirms this as the correct building, though with the caveat that "This building is said to have been at one time, an inn The Conquering Hero."

Auction on behalf of the late Mr James DAKIN, to sell the Conquering Hero Beer House, in Shilling Street, Lavenham, with new brick-built cottage & Garden ground in the rear, together with an estimated value of £15 per annum, in this lot, will be included the brewing plant, utensils & fixtures.Bury & Norwich Post & Suffolk Herald, May 21st 1856**
