In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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.

Hadleigh Flying Chariot

Hadleigh Flying Chariot

also traded as Royal Oak

Closed before 1885?.

92-94 Benton St

grid reference TM 029 418

This building is recorded as a former inn in the Listed Buildings Register. It's shown on OS maps as early as 1885 as "Flying Chariot", but not marked as a pub (by contrast, the nearby King's Arms is clearly marked as an inn), so presumably closed before that date.

The building dates from the 16th century, but most features are from the 17th. It's one of the most beautifully pargetted buildings in the town (see the gallery for pictures).

The right-hand side of the building was reputedly once used as a butchers with a slaughterhouse to the rear.
