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.

Chelmondiston Foresters' Arms

Chelmondiston Foresters' Arms

closed 2008.

Main Rd [B1456], IP9 1DY

grid reference TM 205 372

Large open-plan bar which was mainly used for dining.

It's been closed and empty since early 2008.

Planning permission for residential conversion was granted in October 2011 and work finally commenced in 2015. Though a plan to reopen the pub as a "Real Ale destination pub" was mooted in 2012, this came to nothing. The building was demolished early in 2019.

In the March 1981 edition of Last Orders*** it was reported that this Ind Coope pub was selling Burton ale on handpump.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1902 (larger map)

The Ancient Order of Foresters began in 1834 and were previously called the Royal Foresters (formed in the 18th century). Members pay into a common fund from which sick pay and funeral grants could be drawn for families that are financially distressed or destitute.
