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.

Hadleigh White Lion

Hadleigh White Lion

also traded as Lion Hotel

Closed late 1980s

opened pre-1754

High St

grid reference TM 027 424

A former Commercial Inn & Posting House.

Now converted into a number of flats. The building retains many original features both at the front and in a small enclosed central courtyard. Sadly a fire in 2011 damaged part of building to the rear of the property.

A Survey of Suffolk Parish History tells us that there a records of a bowling green opening at the White Lion in 1754, so we can be sure the inn was extant prior to that. Although the façade only dates from the 18th century, the Listed Buildings Register says that the building probably dates from the 16th or 17th century.

The inn can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
