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.

Haverhill Australian Arms

Haverhill Australian Arms

Closed post-1970

last owner/operator: Greene King

48 Hamlet Rd, CB9 8QQ

grid reference TL 677 448

A last surviving pub in town that was formerly owned by the Christmas brewery. Where the unusual name came from is unknown; as of 2018 there is only a single pub of this name in existence, in Ramsgate.

The pub was found closed and boarded-up when visited in May 2010 and believed to have been closed for some time before that (though it was certainly open in June 2007). In May 2011, planning permission was granted for its conversion into flats.

Also listed at 28 Hamlet Rd.








Pub name comes from an Australian workforce that was used to construct the nearby Sturmer Arches railway viaduct - a three-arch structure 25 feet high that was built about 1890 to link Colne Valley and GER lines - so enabling traffic from Sudbury to Cambridge.
