In the light of the latest government instructions, all pubs are now closed until at least December 2nd.
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.
After the end of Lockdown, Suffolk will remain in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.
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.
Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.
Linstead Parva Greyhound
Linstead Parva Greyhound
closed 4th March 1955
grid reference TM 329 781
The Greyhound closed in 1955 when the last tenant left; Lacon's decided that the isolated location and lack of people living nearby didn't make the pub worth continuing with.
The building was extensively renovated and somewhat remodelled between 2012 and 2016, though it's just about recognisable.
The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
