Willoughby Arms

The Willoughby Arms was situated on Willoughby Close, Main Road. This pub closed in the 1990s and is now in residential use.
 
 I used this pub during the 1970s when I stayed at Hacheston, next village. It closed about 1980 when the elderly couple retired or died. They were in their 80s. The locals also used it as a sweet shop. The draft beer was ‘Worthington E’ which took an age for them to pour. They also had Tolly beers in bottles. The publican told me that they had rarely left the village during their lifetimes and had gone to London in 1933 hated it and returned on the next possible train. It had a small snug and little else.
