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

Lawshall is one of the most dispersed villages in Suffolk, listed in Domesday as "Lawessela". It appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Lawſhill".

A Bronze age sword was once excavated locally and is now on display in Bury Museum. Elizabeth I visited the Hall in 1578. A neighbouring Catholic family, the Rockwoods, also invited the monarch to visit. The crown's reply was to imprison one of the family in Bury Gaol, where he subsequently died. A later member of the family was executed for involvement in the Gunpowder Plot.
