Important Covid information

The first tranche of pubs (those able to serve outdoors) have now been allowed to reopen. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those known to have reopened or to be planning to reopen as soon as permitted are listed on this page.


Please tell us if you know of any pubs here ready to reopen when outdoors service is permitted.

The original settlement and pubs are now by-passed on the northern side. The church stands rather isolated overlooking Martlesham Creek, the mouth of which forms the confluence of rivers Fynn and Deben.

Martlesham was recorded in Domesday as "Merlesham" and on John Speed's 1610 map as "Mertleſham".

Various pleasant walks locally include footpaths long the river walls to Woodbridge (about 2 miles).

Iron Age and Romano-British artefacts found in Martlesham Creek at Sluice Wood are indicative of ancient settlements there.

Nearby Martlesham Heath has become established as a separate settlement.
