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

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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.

Leiston White Lion

Leiston White Lion

Closed unknown.

Valley Rd

grid reference TM 445 626

No mention of the White Lion has been found in the Blything licensing records (we've been through all available books from 1874 to 1967) and it doesn't appear on any available OS maps. It may be that this pub is erroneous or closed in the 1870s. Or could it have been an older name for the White Horse? It isn't clear how the location shown here was ascertained.
