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.
Charsfield is a small village on the River Deben, recorded in Domesday variously as "Ceresfella", "Caresfelda", "Cerfella", "Keresfelda" and "Carsfelda". John Speed's 1610 map shows the village as "Charsfelde".
Ronald Blyth's book "Akenfield, portrait of an English village" is based upon this village. It was later made into a film, which brought Peggy Cole to fame.
