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.

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.
