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.

Laxfield Red Lyon

Laxfield Red Lyon

Closed pre-1840.

The Red Lyon was reported as being for sale in the Ipswich Journal on July 1765 as follows:

To be sold, the Publick Inn, called the Red Lyon, in Laxfield, consisting of a well-timber'd Messuage, containing several large convenient Rooms and Offices, with a Barn, Stable, Garden, and two convenient Hemplands or Orchards, also several good Pieces of very good arable, meadow and pasture Land, lying contiuous to the Dwelling-House, now in the Occupation of Mary Dowsing, under an Agreement which expires at Michaelmas next...The Premises are wholly or chiefly Freehold, subject only to a Rent of 5 Shillings a year, and moderately assessed to the Land-Tax.

Footnote

NOTE: A messuage equates to a dwelling-house and may include outbuildings, orchard, curtilage or court-yard and garden - this may have been an earlier structure to the current property.
