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 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.
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***
