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.

Sudbury Plough

Sudbury Plough

closed 1990

77 Melford Rd

grid reference TL 871 418

The Plough dates back to at least 1780, when the Ipswich Journal reported:

January 8th 1780

On Monday evening the members of the anti American club met at the Plough Inn at Sudbury and unanimously condemned to the flames the London Evening Post, printed by J.Miller and known here by the appellation of the lying paper on account of the inflammatory pieces constantly inserted therein.

The pub is reported variously at 32, 33 and 34 Melford Road.

In 1830 it's listed in Mill Hill (though this may be an earlier tavern of the same name?)
