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.

Denham (Mid Suffolk) Green Man

Denham (Mid Suffolk) Green Man

closed 10th May 1956

opened 1840s (mid)

last owner/operator: Lacon's

Denham Green

grid reference TM 195 739

The Green Man was popular with US airmen during the Second Word War, as it was close to the RAF Horham airbase. Glenn Miller certainly visited the pub, as photographs exist of him standing outside it.

The building standing here now is not the original pub building, but is a more modern one constructed on the footprint of the pub (even incorporating a porch in the same position).

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

Thanks to Phil Saunders for letting us know that the building on site now is not actually the pub.

Closure date from Hoxne licensing records.
