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

Kettleburgh is a compact settlement nestling on the bank of the upper reaches of the river Deben. It may be historically listed as Kettleborough and was recorded in Domesday variously as "Ketelbiria", "Cetelbirig", "Ketlebere", "Kettleberga", "Chetelberia" and "Ketdesbirig".

An area known as Great Cockstool may refer to the presence of a "cucking stool" used for public derision of petty offenders. James Brighton Grant was the owner of the Deben brewery situated alongside the pub in the mid-19th century, until being imprisoned for not paying his church rates, one of the last people to be penalised for this. The brewery was subsequently sold to pay his debts.

A Romano-British settlement in the area of The Street has been dated to the 1st or 2nd century.
