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.

Felixstowe Ferry Sun Inn

Felixstowe Ferry Sun Inn

Closed unknown era

Richard Cobbold's novel "The History of Margaret Catchpole", based loosely on Catchpole's life, has her brother Edward staying at one point in the Sun Inn at Bawdsey Ferry (now known as Felixstowe Ferry). Whether this was an older name for one of the two other pubs documented here or a different one is unknown.

Although Cobbold's story about Catchpole was mostly fantasy, he does seem pretty reliable where geography is concerned, so we can probably be reasonably confident this pub did exist.
