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.
Closed between 1921 and 1927?

The 1921 OS map shows the inn at this location. No pub is shown on sheets from 1927 onwards, so presumably it closed between those dates. The pub is listed in the Rate Book that was in use from 1910 to the 1930s, but at some point has been marked as de-licensed, adding credence to this estimated closure era.
It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
