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.
You can now buy beer from many pubs and breweries via CAMRA's new Brew2You app. Click on the logo to download the app.
The small village church (All Saints) contains what is said to be Suffolk's best surviving set of village stocks and whipping post. The village is sometimes spelled Saxted.
Saxtead Green is a large village green about half a mile south of the main village. The well preserved and working post-mill dates from 1860 and is situated rather idyllically on the green. It is now designated an ancient monument. It's on the site of two earlier mills, one built in 1796 and an even earlier one dating from to before 1309. A Roman road once crossed the green and a possible Roman occupation site has been located about half a mile north-east of the pub. Unfortunately there have been some modern developments around the green in recent years.
Saxtead was recorded in Domesday as "Saxteda".
The 1844 White's Directory also lists a beer house run by Priscilla Thrower.
