Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

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**
