Chattisham

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.

Introduction

Chattisham was owned by Henry VIII, who exchanged it in 1532 for the site of a leper hospital on which he built St James's Palace.

Although there are few records of the old beerhouse, it appears on the village sign.

The foundations of a smock windmill dating from 1867 can still be seen near the road towards Hintlesham. It was demolished round about 1950.

The village was recorded in Domesday as "Cedeberia" or "Cetessam".
