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 between 1958 and 1968?.

grid reference TM 028 421

The current building possibly dates from 1839, but replaced an earlier one on the same site that dates back to the early 17th century. The pub was called the Swan before 1870.

The Black Swan is shown on the 1958 OS map but seems to have gone by the 1968 and subsequent maps, so presumably closed between those dates.

It's shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map

Black Swan yard is adjacent to the pub building.

The building is now residential.

It may also be listed at Benton End.

By 1924 it was owned by Cobbold's Brewery (but had been sold by them by 1961).

In 1836 John Clark (landlord of the Swan) was reported in the Ipswich Journal as being arrested for receiving a stolen horse.
