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.

Polstead Eight Bells

Polstead Eight Bells

Closed before 1886?

Marten's Ln

grid reference TL 992 378

The Eight Bells was built in the 17th or 18th century. It isn't shown on any available OS map (as early as 1886), so probably closed a long time ago.

It's possible this is a mis-report of the Five Bells. Though confusingly, it seems Polstead church has six bells!
