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.

Burnt Fen Pig & Whistle

Burnt Fen Pig & Whistle

Closed late 1950s

Whistle Drove

grid reference TL 649 829

A fair used to be held in front of the pub.

My grandfather was the landlord from about 1911 or 1912. My father was a baby when thay moved in after being flooded out by little ouse (on the Norfolk side of the river). After my grandfather finished with the pub my fathers brother Jim then took over and was the last landlord there was when he called time and the doors closed for the last time. I have a photo of my father and uncle Jim with others outside the Pig and Whistle in 1920 - published - I think thay were just off to play couits (quoits) and thay were runners up in the West Suffolk league that year. Uncle Jim is 5th from left and my father is the young boy with the dog in front of him. The lady in the picture is my aunt Mabel.from Francis Brown

The pub was demolished in the 1980s…
