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.

Woodbridge Queen's Head

Woodbridge Queen's Head

also traded as Mariners

closed 31st November 1960.

last owner/operator: Cobbold's

70 Seckford St

grid reference TM 268 491

The pub dates from the 16th or 17th century, with early 19th century façade.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Queen's Head's license was issued in 1843. Whether this was when it was first licensed or when it got a full (ie not just beer) license isn't clear, though the latter seems more probable.

It closed in 1960 when the landlord died. Cobbold's decided that since there were four other pubs nearby, there was no point in it continuing to trade (information from the licensing records).

It's shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
