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.

Now residential, the pub was built in the 17th century.

Stuart Forbes was stationed at RAF Bentwaters twice, in the late 1960s and in the early 1970s. The pub was one of his favourites (if not most favourite). Then it was a Whitbread pub and the landlord was Jim Finbow, a real gentleman. It was painted green and Saturday nights were special. Some of the patrons sang Suffolk songs. All the patrons were older, never young ones and they loved to tell WW2 stories.
