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.

Well off the beaten track in very rural countryside, a really traditional Suffolk free house, hard to find but well worth seeking out. Being run by former CAMRA local-POTY winners Jane & Mike Binyon (23 years experience). With knowledgeable staff to match the ever changing range of both cask and keg beers. Real ale focus is now on East Anglian breweries mostly within a 50 mile radius of the pub. Two pub beer festivals and the annual Eddyfest (August BH) are highlights in the pub events calendar. New Folk Festival starting 20th June 2020 plus the annual Cider Festival (in Oct).
