In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

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.

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.

2 Church St, IP12 1DH

grid reference TM 272 489

A two bar pub which was adjacent to the Town Cross, where it would have been the custom in ancient days for locals to meet in order to obtain news from the travellers who descended from their coach, or to hearken to the words of a local preacher.

It is now an "American-style diner".

NB Not to be confused with another Cross in the town, called Roger's Cross, located where the King's Arms once stood.

Although 1652 is marked on the building, it is thought to be considerably older than this. The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Cross's license was issued in 1652.

The Cross is listed at Stone Street in 1830.…
