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.

Bury St Edmunds Playhouse Bar

opened 1960s

High Baxter St

grid reference TL 853 642

The Playhouse Bar was to the rear of the former Playhouse Cinema. The entrance to the Playhouse Bar was up an alley way from High Baxter Street. It had only one long bar.from Keith Willingham

The Playhouse Bar stood roughly where Argos is now; the ancient Half Moon inn was behind it, closer to High Baxter Street.

This [pub] was located behind what was LD Faiers' Wine Shop in the late 60 - 70s. There was a walk way between Buttermarket and High Baxter St and pub was midway between the two. It may have been originally a part of the Playhouse Cinema that was in Buttermarket? I worked there as a lad cleaning up on Sundays!!from G Reeve
