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.

closed 10th October 1909.

20 & 20a Cumberland St

grid reference TM 271 488

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Wellington'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 surrendered in October 1909. A letter From W Banks (on behalf of Cobbold & Co) to F I W Wood esq. Clerk to the Justices, Woodbridge, gives the date of closure as 10th Oct 1909. The last landlady was Mrs Tuthill.

It's shown on this OS town plan of 1881.
