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.

Worlington Bell

Worlington Bell

Closed between 1958 and 1979

The Street

grid reference TL 691 736

On an old postcard the pub is referred to as "not halfs" house.

The pub appears on the 1958 OS maps but not 1979, so presumably closed some time between.

Charles PHILLIPS of the Bell, Worlington, made an application for a one hour extension on 21 Jan 1885, in the occasion of the navvies' supper.Bury & Norfolk Post & Suffolk Herald, January 13th 1885**

The pub is shown (along with the Chequers, now the Golden Boar) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
