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

This characterful village and popular yachting centre on the south side of the river Deben is known to have been a site of settlement for over 1500 years. Iron Age finds have also been found locally. The area around the village was heavily involved in coprolite mining.

During WW2 admission to the village was by permit only due to military activities. Dummy barges were moored along the river here and illuminated at night to draw the Luftwaffe from genuine military targets nearby.

Waldringfield was recorded in Domesday as "Waldingafelda", along with another (abandoned?) settlement called "Minima Waldringafelda" (Lesser Waldringfield). John Speed's 1610 map shows the village as "Waldringfelde".
