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.

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.

grid reference TM 468 793

The Sawyers Arms was known locally as the Barking Dicky, because of a landlord who kept a donkey, which brayed continuously. (Dicky is a Suffolk dialect word for a Donkey). It closed in 1957, when the license was transferred to the Plough.

The building has a chequered history; at one time, so a neighbour tells us, it was even a chapel (presumably not at the same time it was a pub).
