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 difficult 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.

Much of the space is taken up with a popular restaurant, with all day breakfast available anytime open and Sunday roasts. Bar area close to the main entrance. Two hand pumps. Regular Live music on Fridays with open Mic once a month (first Friday).

After 25 years closed, the Ark reopened on Thursday November 2nd 2017.

In the later years of its original incarnation, the Ark had a reputation as a place where unusual (for the time) Real Ales were to be had. Many beer-lovers from Ipswich would make the trek here for something different.

The pub's name reputedly dates back to an earlier building which was constructed out of timbers from an old ship.
