Reopened pubs

As pubs across the county are starting to reopen, we're trying to collate a comprehensive list of those that have reopened or are close to it. Our list can be found on this page.


Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. 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 difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Lavenham Conquering Hero

Lavenham Conquering Hero

Closed about 1856

14/15 Shilling St

grid reference TL 917 491

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**
