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.

The Plough is only shown on OS maps as a beerhouse up to 1891; from the 1903 sheet onwards it's not marked, Though we have records showing the pub open until at least 1937.
Interestingly, modern maps do show it as the Plough (which helped our roaming photographer to find the right building).
Some censuses list the pub as Meltons Farm or Miltons, which are assumed to be the location, rather than the pub name.
Henry Tricker, bricklayer, of Groton was summoned by William Bigg, landlord of the Plough Inn, at Milden, for being quarrelsome and refusing to leave his house when requested to do so, on the 22nd January 1865. Found guilty he was fined 5s with 8s 6d costs.Ipswich Journal, February 1865**
