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

Beyton is a quiet village with a large green, located off the A14, which was recorded in Domesday as "Begatona". The 1837 OS map shows the village as "Beighton". It also appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Beighton".

The church tower is unusual shape.

The village green was a major stop-over point for drovers taking cattle between Bury and Ipswich. It's still home to a flock of geese which are celebrated on the village sign.
