Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. 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.

The current building probably dates from about 1840 when they built the "new" almshouses. The pub was certainly not there before 1830 although several earlier buildings were located close by and were also demolished at about that time.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Seckford Arms's beerhouse license was issued in 1853…
