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.

It seems that the inn probably occupied the left-hand side of the building in our photograph. A 1906 photograph in the Spanton Jarman collection shows Mr Bullen's shop (number 20) to the right. There's no inn signage so it may have already been closed by that year, despite the quoted closure date of 1912.

It was called the White Horse before 1875.
In the late 19th century this was a popular venue for troops of Suffolk militia and free fights were frequent. These, however, inevitably ended as soon as they began, for at that time a local Police station was located nearby in Moyses Hall.Old Inns of Suffolk, Leonard P Thompson
