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.

Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.

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.

Lavenham Red Lion

Lavenham Red Lion

Closed before 1772?

opened 14th century

8-9 Market Place

grid reference TL 915 493

In recent years the former Red Lion has been used both as tea rooms and as a book-shop. The Listed Buildings Register confirms this as the correct building.

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)
