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.

Stowmarket Bull

Stowmarket Bull

closed 1809

opened about 1714

Station Rd West

grid reference TM 048 586

The pub building (sometimes also listed in Cloth Market Lane) stood here until 1843 when it was demolished after many years as a cabinet maker's shop.

It was owned by William Langham in the late 18th century and subsequently by John Cobbold after 1798 - one of the first pubs the Ipswich-based brewer owned in Stowmarket.

Station Road was previously called Bull Lane. An even earlier road name was Dolphin Lane suggesting another even earlier public house was once located nearby?
