Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. 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 difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Hopton Greyhound

Hopton Greyhound

also traded as Cherry Tree

Closed between 1958 and 1976

opened pre-1761

Bury Rd

grid reference TL 991 787

The Greyhound is shown as late as 1958 on OS maps. By the 1976 sheet it's shown as "old Greyhound", so it evidently closed between those dates.

It isn't clear to us which of the cluster of buildings here was the inn itself, or whether it took them all up.

According to A Survey of Suffolk Parish History, the Cherry Tree (the Greyhound's older name) was recorded as long ago as 1761.

The 1869 Kelly's Directory lists the landlord William Haywood as a brewer. This is currently the only reference we have to brewing on these premises.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1903 (interactive map)
