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.

Thrandeston Royal Oak

Thrandeston Royal Oak

Closed between 1861 and 1891?

Mellis Rd

grid reference TM 111 760 (approximate location)

We have examined the Hartismere licensing records from 1923 to 1962 and found no trace of this pub. It isn't mentioned in the 1909 Rates book. A Survey of Suffolk Parish History lists 2 beerhouses in 1844 but just the Queen's Head in 1891, so apparently it closed between 1861 (the most recent directory entry found) and that year. Since there seem to be no records for the Queen's Head, perhaps this was an older name for that pub?
