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.

Thurston Black Fox

Thurston Black Fox

closed 1991

opened about 1885

Barrells Rd

grid reference TL 939 651

Now residential.

When it was open, the Black Fox had a good reputation for its beer. Ady Smith, the current landlord of the Ipswich Dove, used to cycle here regularly when he lived in Finborough.

It's shown as an un-named beerhouse on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century and probably dates from just before that time. interactive map
