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

Crowfield is a mainly linear village, with most of the homes spread along the Roman Stone Street, which connects Coddenham to Peasenhall. It was recorded in Domesday as "Crofelda".

The church, which is some distance from the main village, features the only half-timbered chancel in Suffolk.

A small smock mill, previously used as a drainage mill near Great Yarmouth, was moved to Crowfield in about 1840 and converted to a grain mill. In 1916, the cap was blown off; it continued to work with an engine until about 1935.

The village's most famous resident is Roy Hudd, who uses his influence to ensure the annual village fête always has someone well-known to open it.
