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

Bredfield is a straggling settlement which was recorded in Domesday variously as "Bredefelda","Bredefeld", "Berdefelda", "Bradefella" and "Bredefella". Fortunately for us, the spelling has stabilised since then, though it was once known as Broadfield.

The southern half is located around an old water-pump. To the north are some pretty pink cottages and Bredfield High House (the "castle" which gave the former village pub its name).

Nearby Dallinghoo Wield was the smallest parish in England (38 acres and no population) until local government changes saw it disappear completely.
