In the light of the latest government instructions, all pubs are now closed until at least December 2nd.
A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.
After the end of Lockdown, Suffolk will remain in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.
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.
Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.
Closed before 1882?
6, 8, 10 The Street
grid reference TM 124 463
The building dates from mediaeval times. It's understood that the Bell was in the left-hand side of the building pictured. It isn't shown on any available OS maps (as early as 1882) so presumably closed before that date.
The building in our photo is confirmed as the old Bell by the Listed Buildings Register.
To be lett, an o'd and good accustom'd Public-House, late the Sign of the Bell, in Bramford and then in the Occupation of Thomas Moller, with a Malt-Office and Cistern 17Comb steep, a Barn, Stables, Backhouse etc. and a Piece of Land adjoining to them.Ipswich Journal, July 20th 1751***
