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.

Shipmeadow Compasses?

Shipmeadow Compasses?

Thought to have been a pub but there is a degree of doubt.

The Hill

grid reference TM 382 899 (approximate location)

The 1837 OS map is marked "Compasses" at this approximate location. Was it a pub? If you know for certain one way or the other, please let us know.

There's no mention of this in the 1909 Rates book, so if it was a pub, it must have closed before then.

No pub references have been found in any of the censuses from 1841 to 1901.

A Survey of Suffolk Parish History lists a beerhouse in 1844 - perhaps this was it?
