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.

Stoke by Nayland Black Horse

Stoke by Nayland Black Horse

also traded as White Horse (Polstead)

closed 2000

Polstead St, CO6 4SA

grid reference TL 988 363

A pretty two bar pub which was located close to old quoits pitches, and has been converted to residential use.

It was historically in Polstead, but transferred into Stoke by Nayland due to boundary changes, probably in 1935 but possibly in 1884. (It's listed in Stoke By Nayland in the 1911 census, but in Polstead in earlier censuses).

The previous name of the White Horse could be confused with White Horse in School St.

The 1901 census records the White Horse, Polstead Street, Polstead; presumably before the boundary change to Stoke By Nayland. (White Horse, School Street, is recorded in Stoke By Nayland.)

In the April/May 1982 edition of Last Orders*** it was reported that the Black Horse (Ind Coope) had bitter on handpump.
