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

Bacton is a spread-out village based around 7 greens. There are still some pleasant open spaces today despite the rapid expansion which has occurred in recent years. Bacton was recorded in Domesday as "Bachetuna".

Just to cause confusion, Finningham railway station was actually within Bacton's parish boundary. The station buildings can still be seen to this day, alongsie the road bridge over the railway line.

Bacton Hall dates back to the 16th century.
