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

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. 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.

Stowmarket White Elm

Stowmarket White Elm

Closed between 1837 and 1885

Bury Rd

grid reference TM 038 601

The White Elm was a pub that mainly operated in the 17th and 18th centuries. It was advertised by John Roper in 1797 for sale in Bury & Norwich Post.

The pub was located between Spikes Farm and Tollgate.

It must have been flattened to build the A14. On the 1885 OS map, it's just shown as "The Elms", so must have closed between those dates.

(detailed information from Neil Langridge - and also Brian Southgate - see their book "Stowmarket, Combs and Stowupland Pubs" published by Polstead Press in 2009)

Landlord entries from censuses probably refer to residents after the pub was closed.

It's shown at this location on the 1837 OS map:
