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.

Woodbridge Horse & Groom

Woodbridge Horse & Groom

also traded as Three Horseshoes, Horseshoes, ?Coach & Horses?

closed 4th April 1927.

last owner/operator: Cobbold's

68 Cumberland St

grid reference TM 269 487

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Horse & Groom'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.

It closed in 1960, when the license was transferred to a new (un-named) pub in Sproughton (possibly the Beagle?). The building is now residential.

The building dates from the 18th century.

The 1891 census records Henry Sawyer at the Coach & Horses, Cumberland Street, which has been assumed to be an alternative name for this pub, although it could be a previously unknown pub or a mistake in the census.

It's shown (though not named) on this OS town plan of 1881.
