Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Gislingham Prince George

Gislingham Prince George

also traded as Prince of Wales

Closed 1926 or 1927

last owner/operator: Colchester Brewery

West View House High St

grid reference TM 075 715

Now West View House, this was build around 1600, with some rebuilding a century later and alterations in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The license wasn't renewed in 1927, so the pub presumably closed about 1926 or 1927.

NOTE: With the death of Frederick, Prince of Wales in 1751 his eldest on Prince George became heir to British throne (and crowned King George the third in 1760).
