In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

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.
