Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

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?
