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.

Cockfield King's Head

Cockfield King's Head

Closed between 1961 and 1975.

Cross Green

grid reference TL 896 554

The King's Head was built in the 16th century, with additions in the 17th. The building now houses Thatchers Restaurant.

The pub appears on the 1958 OS map, but has gone by the 1975 sheet (when the building's shown as "Thatchers"), so presumably closed between those dates.

it's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map

My grandfather James Jolly was landlord here and also at the Brettenham Crown. I lived with him from 1940 to 1945, his sister also had Felsham Six Bells and two nephews had Hesset Five Bells & Preston Six Bells.Jim Hill

In 1874 the pub was listed at Hall Green and in 1891 at the Water Cross Green.

I was born [in Cockfield] and lived there until 1961 at Cross Green…
