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.

closed 1907.

The pub building dates from the 16th or 17th century. Today it's called called Greyhound Cottage.

Evidently the pub must have closed in or just before 1911, if this press cutting is any indication:

Mr J.Pettit has bought the former Greyhound Inn at Glemsford for £185, the licence having been refused.Suffolk Free Press, August 30th 1911**

The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
