In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the 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.

Bury St Edmunds Admirals Head

Bury St Edmunds Admirals Head

closed 1908.

56 Long Brackland

grid reference TL 853 648

The Admiral's Head has been demolished.

Long Brackland used to stretch along what's now St John Street, so the pub may have been there. The building we think it was seems to have been replaced by a relatively new building.

The pub is listed at number 56 by 1888 and number 63 by 1891 (Not present numbering). In 1901 it is listed before 64 & 65 Long Brackland, Bakers Terrace and 66 & 67 Long Brackland, which suggests that it was almost opposite the Britannia, on the south side of Long Brackland.
