Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" 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.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

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

Footnote

The Earl of Stradbroke title was created in 1821 for John Rous, 1st Baron Rous, who had represented Suffolk as an MP in the House of Commons. He was also made Viscount Dunwich and was lord of the manor in Darsham. The Rous family seat is Henham Park near Blythburgh and is home to the Latitude Festival.
