Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. 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.


The mother settlement to Southwold, originally known as Rissemere and recorded in Domesday as "Reinduna". The village appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Roydon".

Today the village is mainly composed of modern housing separated from Southwold by Buss creek. The marshes extend from the southern end of the village down to the Blyth estuary. A new distribution centre was built in the parish by Adnams brewery in the early years of the century.

Blackshore Mill is a former drainage windmill on the bank of the Blyth. Sources differ as to when it was built; some suggest 1890, others 1850. Another mill is said to have stood at Reydon Quay.
