Bruisyard village hall becomes a pub every Thursday night
Residents in Bruisyard have overcome the absence of a local, by starting a weekly 'pub night' at the village hall.
The village near Saxmundham, which has a population of under 200, last had a pub in the 1960s.
The pub night runs every Thursday from 7.30pm, with all profits being reinvested into the village hall.
"We haven't got anything, a shop, post office or pub so this is the centre of everywhere," said one local. "It's been a dry old time."
The pub night began in January and the success has surprised John McKee, chairman of the village hall committee.
"People asked 'what are we going to do with the hall?' I said 'we've got the hall, we've got the licence, we'll have a pub night," said John.
"We have visitors from Essex who say they've heard about us, and from the caravan park at Carlton."
John says the village hall's customers have been impressed by the prices, recalling one exchange.
"When they ask for a drink and I told them the price and they said 'are you alright? A pub charges me £4 for one of them'.
"Well they make a lot off you', I said."
