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.

In recent years the former Red Lion has been used both as tea rooms and as a book-shop.

A reference to the pub appears in the Ipswich Journal, October 3rd 1772*** when a large Dwelling House, with the Yards and Buildings, formerly known by the Name of the Red Lyon, in the Market-Place, in Lavenham is being sold. (The sale appears to have been triggered by the death of Rowland Branwhite, Common Brewer)
