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.

The Flying-boat Bar was a public bar that was just a part of this large & extensive hotel complex that enjoys fine views over the promenade.
Hotel is currently closed, future is unknown.
The 1910 Felixstowe Rates Book lists "Site of Marlboro' Hotel" in Sea Road, suggesting that the hotel was built after this date. (This particular book lists a large number of land plots evidently destined to be used for the expansion of the town).
