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 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.

Thorpeness Cross Keys

Thorpeness Cross Keys

Closed 1840-1920

The Cross Keys is listed in Thorpe which was originally listed as a hamlet of Aldringham.

In 1855, John Ralph was at the Cross Keys and in Morris County Directory for 1861, Maria Watson is the owner. From local records, a George Gowing owned the Crown, prior to 1858. Were there 2 public houses, i.e. the Cross Keys & the Crown. or did one of them replace a much earlier establishment called the Chequers and did the Cross Keys eventually become the Crown?Inns of the Suffolk Coast, Leonard P Thompson, 1969

Note: we know that the Crown became the Dolphin, but Thompson's question as whether the Cross Keys was an older name for that or a different pub is still unanswered.
