In the light of the latest government instructions, all pubs are now closed until at least December 2nd.

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.

After the end of Lockdown, Suffolk will remain in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

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.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Cockfield Greyhound

Cockfield Greyhound

Closed 1950s or later

off A134

grid reference TL 888 535

Dr Martin Moss tells us:

Although the closure date of the Greyhound is given as around 1870 the pub was still going strong when my grandfather George Harry Long frequented the pub up to around 1930 when he used to get his haircut there. A novel service for a public house. In my own and my father's recollection, I am sure the Greyhound was still trading until the 1950s.

It isn't entirely clear from this map precisely which building was the Greyhound. Looking more closely, it appears it may actually have been the (now demolished) building to the north-west of the one in our photograph; especially as this shows a building much extended from what's shown on the map.

The pub is shown as "old Greyhound" on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
