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.

The Jolly Farmers was built late in the 16th century as a farmhouse. It's now a B&B.

(see website at http://www.jolly-farmers-suffolk.com)

Originally opened as a beer-house in about 1830 and was bought by Steward & Patteson in 1885. When Watneys took S&P in the late 60s it closed in Nov 68 on economic grounds.from Stuart Newby (Jolly Farmers B&B - March 2008)

[Note the 1841 census shows Martha Chandler as a beerhouse keeper in the next entry, so this may be the Jolly Farmers.]

It's also been reported at Mill Green, Fressingfield, in 1881.

It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
