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.

Hawstead Metcalfe Arms

Hawstead Metcalfe Arms

Closed 2013

Lawshall Rd, IP29 5NR

grid reference TL 862 581

This was a friendly two room traditional pub set in six acres of grounds.

It was converted into a cycle shop and café in 2014, having suffered a serious fire from which the business never recovered, a couple of years earlier.

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