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

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Introduction

Close to RAF Wattisham, Great Bricett is quieter now that helicopters are based there rather than Lightnings or Phantoms. It was recorded in Domesday as "Brieseta". The church was formerly an Augustinian priory founded about 1114. The nearby hall dates from about 1250.

Mill Lane marks the site of a smock mill, which was destroyed in September 1954.

Little Bricett no longer exists as a discrete entity; it's now part of Offton.
