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.

Sudbury Rising Sun

Sudbury Rising Sun

also traded as Sun beer house

closed 1980

7 Plough Ln

grid reference TL 869 411

Now residential.

Reported in Last Orders in January 1981 as closing in September 1980. "Deeply lamented by a large circle of friends and acquaintances. May its spirit haunt the GK directors ever more." Perhaps the circle of friends was too small?

There was a house in Sudbury,
They called the Rising Sun,
And in this house for miles around
For the ale the folks did run.
But then one day in a fit of pique
The GK bosses met.
"Dear Stan & Mae, this pub won't pay,
Your Sun has got to set!
The local ale-drinking folk
Were much upset by this.
For now they must go to other pubs;
And drink beer that tastes like ?£!Phil Smart, Sudbury
