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.

Bury St Edmunds Playhouse Bar

Bury St Edmunds Playhouse Bar

Closed 1970s (early)

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
