In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the 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.

Debenham Eight Bells

Debenham Eight Bells

also traded as Bells

closed 1911.

56 High St

grid reference TM 174 630

The book "Samuel Dove's Debenham", places the Eight Bells at number 56 High Street. However, the 1885 OS map clearly shows it further south at number 72, where Dove has the Ten Bells. Unless the OS map is incorrect, it seems Dove has the two reversed.

The pub is said to have closed in 1911 after a fire destroyed the building, though the building at this location seems as if it's the original, so perhaps this story refers to another pub? (Maybe the Ten Bells?)

Should not be confused with Bells Inn - although this was also called Bells inn on some occasions.
