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.

Thrandeston Royal Oak

Closed between 1861 and 1891?.

Mellis Rd

grid reference TM 111 760

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?
