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

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the 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.

Woodbridge Cock & Pye

Woodbridge Cock & Pye

closed 31st January 1911.

78 New St

grid reference TM 271 491

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Cock & Pye's license was issued in 1853. Whether this was when it was first licensed or when it got a full (ie not just beer) license isn't clear, though the latter seems more probable.

The license was expired in 1911 as part of a scheme to reduce the number of alcohol licenses.

The building dates from the 17th century. It's shown on this OS town plan of 1881.

Footnote

The cock & pie may be a reference to peacock pie - a medieval dish for the wealthy.

NOTE: A messuage equates to a dwelling-house and may include outbuildings, orchard, curtilage or court-yard and garden - this may have been an earlier structure to the current property.
