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 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.

Woolpit White Elm

Woolpit White Elm

also traded as Railway Tavern

Closed between 1904 and 1974?.

The Street

grid reference TL 968 628

The White Elm is shown on OS maps as a beerhouse at least as late as 1904. By the 1974 sheet, it's just shown as "The White Elm" - whether or not it was still a beerhouse by that date isn't entirely clear, but it seems likely it wasn't.

It's also reported in Tavern Row (1861), Norton Road (1871/1881) and Broom Hill (1891).

A Railway Tavern is listed in 1851 between Tavern Street and Broom Hill. This is assumed to be an earlier name for the White Elm.

It's shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
