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.

Wetherden Maltsters' Arms

Wetherden Maltsters' Arms

Closed unknown era

Stowmarket Rd

grid reference TM 007 627

This is an early 16th century building, with major rebuilding in the 17th century. Now Home Farm.

The building we show is, according to the Listed Buildings Register, what was the Maltsters' Arms. Though the wording is somewhat ambiguous:

Probably built as a parlour wing to the attached Maypole Inn (believed once to have been The Maltsters Arms)

This could be interpreted as saying that the Maypole is believed to have been the Maltsters', though since the dates of the two overlap by a long period, this interpretation seems to be incorrect. To compound the confusion, the entry for the Maypole says:

Believed to have originally been know[sic] as the Maltsters Arms.

Apparently the building was originally built as a parlour wing to the attached Maypole.
