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.

The Eight Bells is on the Essex side of the village; we include it here as both the Essex and Suffolk Bures parishes effectively make up a single village settlement.

It was listed in 1922 as a family & commercial hotel & garage; "taxi cabs meet all trains".
