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.

Thorpeness Cross Keys

Thorpeness Cross Keys

Closed between 1840 and 1920

The Cross Keys is listed in Thorpe which was originally listed as a hamlet of Aldringham.

In 1855, John Ralph was at the Cross Keys and in Morris County Directory for 1861, Maria Watson is the owner. From local records, a George Gowing owned the Crown, prior to 1858. Were there 2 public houses, i.e. the Cross Keys & the Crown. or did one of them replace a much earlier establishment called the Chequers and did the Cross Keys eventually become the Crown?Inns of the Suffolk Coast, Leonard P Thompson, 1969

Note: we know that the Crown became the Dolphin, but Thompson's question as whether the Cross Keys was an older name for that or a different pub is still unanswered.
