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.
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.

Real Ale is sold here.
Station Rd, IP13 9EE
grid reference TM 284 630
A comfortable bar with a wood burner, set in the former station buffet. Today the main room is dominated by the central bar counter which includes a classic set of fine Edwardian hand-pumps. It also includes a small snug and an attractive outdoor drinking area. The pub can be very cosy in the winter when the fire is lit.
It can be very popular at weekends especially as it has an established trade for locally sourced, freshly prepared food (12-2pm and 6.30-9pm) together with an interesting range of quality wines. There's an annual beer festival with live music. Well worth a visit especially as the town still has a better bus service than most of local area.

An application was made for a full license at the Station Hotel but there were objections from the landlord of the Railway Inn and from the landlady of the White Horse Inn. Mr Cobbold was willing to withdraw the license from the Waggon and Horses Inn in favour of the Station Hotel, this arrangement was acceptable to both objectors and magistrates, the transfer was granted.Ipswich Journal, September 1870**
Owned by Earl Soham brewery since 1997 when it reopened after a long period of closure.
