In the light of the latest government instructions, all pubs are now closed until at least December 2nd.

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.

After the end of Lockdown, Suffolk will remain in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

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.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

The original name was given to it by Richard Linsell, an Essex cricket player, who had the cottage built in 1834 and licensed it as the Cricketer's Arms[1].

It's shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. Larger map

[1] From "The life of Richard Linsell, the Essex Cricketer, Pedestrian, and Quoit Player":

In 1834, he entered upon a new speculation. He built a cottage about half-a-mile out of Clare, and obtained without any difficulty, a full licence to it; and from his love of cricket, called it "The Cricketers' Arms."Thanks to Graham Jolliffe for this information
