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.

Footnote

Rear Admiral Sir Philip Broke, of Broke Hall, Ipswich, was the commander of HMS Shannon in the War of 1812, between United States and Britain. His ship is particularly known for the boarding and capture of the US Frigate Chesapeake off Boston, on 1 June 1813. Over 80 were killed in the action and the loosing crew were taken to Halifax, Nova Scotia, where the sailors were imprisoned; the ship was repaired and taken into service by the Royal Navy and later sold at Portsmouth, England in 1819 to be broken up.
