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 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.

Interestingly when he grew up he worked at the same distillery that his father worked for on the river at Hammersmith.Martin Stockwell, Auz
In 1839 William Doole (Robson's Directory) was listed as the publican at the Boars Head Inn, Whip St, Ipswich…
