In the light of the latest government instructions, all pubs are now closed until at least December 2nd.
A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.
After the end of Lockdown, Suffolk will remain in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.
If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.
Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.
Due to current regulations, pubs are closed until December 2nd. From that date, they can only sell drinks when accompanied by a substantial meal. This means not all pubs can reopen at present.
Real Ale is sold here.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Take away service is going great with a large number of people ordering, especially at the weekend, so order early to avoid disappointment. See the menu on website, and some draft beer is still on tap (April 2020) - contact pub to order. #pullingtogether

In the 1830's John Phillips owned the pub which was then known as a brewhouse.
Adnams brewery bought the premises in 1891.
Originally only a beerhouse, the Plough got its full license on August 13th 1960.
The then owners diversified in April 2009 with the addition of a village shop run alongside it.
