Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. 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.

Closed before 1885?

Wingfield Rd

grid reference TM 228 801

We have examined all available Hoxne licensing records (1913-1968) without finding any mention of this pub. In addition, it isn't marked on any OS map (as early as 1885); maps up to 1889 show it as a smithy. It seems likely the pub closed a long time ago.

The 1871 census lists the Queen's Head near the Horseshoes, which may be this pub.

Footnote

The California Gold Rush (1848–1855) began on in January 1848, when gold was discovered by James Wilson Marshall at Sutter's Mill, in Coloma. Over 300,000 men, women, and children headed to California soon after - early gold-seekers were called "forty-niners," (as a reference to 1849).
