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 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.

Bury St Edmunds Beehive

Bury St Edmunds Beehive

also traded as Admiral Hervey, Bee Hive

Closed about 1912.

21 College St

grid reference TL 854 639

The old Beehive was built in the early or mid 19th century.

The main door (with 6 sunk panels) leads into a passageway with a similar doorway at the rear and apparently once led to the public house premises and stabling in the yard.

There have been references to two different Beehive pubs in College St, this one and another at number 50, though there is some doubt about whether number 50 was actually a pub.

For listing detail see

In 1861 the pub is listed at 16 College Street.
