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.

Debenham Road, IP6 9TE
grid reference TM 160 585
After eight years closed, the Rose reopened in April 2019. The old interior has been completely ripped-out and the pub has been refurbished inside and out.
There are four lines for Real Ales (two will be in use initially) and there may also be guest ales in polypins. There's a separate restaurant area (the landlady already has a successful catering business in Bramford) and a nice outside drinking area.
