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.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
Refurbishment completed in Oct 2013 to a high stylish standard.
The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the White Horse's license was issued in 1853. Whether this was when it was first licensed or when it got a full (ie not just beer) license isn't clear, though the latter seems more probable.
An earlier building dates back to at least 1712. The current building opened in 1904 on the same site.
In 1712, licences were being granted at the Pellicane, in East Bergholt and one was agreed for Benjamin Everston at "Whitehorse, Felixstow". The present inn was built in 1904, at the rear of its predecessor."Inns of the Suffolk Coast" by Leonard P Thompson, 1979**
