In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

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.

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.

last owner/operator: cobbold

29 Bath St

grid reference TM 165 434

The Engineers' Arms is understood to have stood at the junction of Hawes Street and Bath Street. Comparing the photograph with the 1883 Town Plan, it appears to have stood on the north-west corner of the junction. It has since been demolished.

The New Engineers Arms in Hawes Street may be confused with this pub.
