Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.

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.

Sudbury Olde Bull

Sudbury Olde Bull

also traded as Bull Inn

Closed 21st-century
Closed around 2013 and later converted to a restaurant.

35-36 Church St, CO10 2BL

grid reference TL 868 409

Currently (April 2013) closed. Though we understand a potential tenant has shown an interest in reopening the pub. If you hear it's been reopened, please let us know. The Bull was apparently de-licensed in the 1950s; we don't know when it reopened.

The Olde Bull is a mid 16th-17th century building with 18th century additions at the west-end. Known as the Bull hotel, it was once known for bull baiting in the yard of the inn.

When it closed in 1959, the license was transferred to the nearby Spread Eagle.

It's shown (though unnamed) on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
