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.

Newmarket Rising Sun

Newmarket Rising Sun

also traded as Sun

Closed unknown.

Sun Ln

grid reference TL 644 633

The Rising Sun is also listed at Lower Station Road, and at Sandpit Lane in 1855.

The 1902 OS map shows a pub at this location; we're assuming it was the Rising Sun, as the location fits (All Saints Rd used to be called Lower Station Road). However, all buildings here now are modern, so the pub must have been demolished if this is correct. Alternatively, this may be an older name for Unique, which we know occupies a much older pub.

It was listed as the Sun in the 1871 census.
