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.

Rushmere St Andrew Buck's head

Rushmere St Andrew Buck's head

Closed between 1840 and 1920

All we know about these premises is a single newspaper report:

Henry Highbee, was committed for trial for having stolen a sovereign the property of Robert Howard, a labourer, of Rushmere. Howard had gone to the Buck's Head public house at Rushmere where he purchased earthenware, to the value of 1s 10d, from Highbee. He mistakenly paid for his goods with a sovereign and a shilling instead of 2s, he soon realised his mistake and told Highbee what he had done. Highbee denied theft but admitted defrauding Howard.Ipswich Journal, October 1850**

Could this actually be in the other Rushmere?
