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.

We only know of this beer house through a newspaper report reproduced below - it does not appear in trade directories - please contact us if you have any more information.

William Freeman was charged with being drunk in charge of a horse and cart at Whitton. He left the Crown with 3 soldiers and stopped off for a beer at Baylam. George Brown, landlord of the beerhouse, served Freeman with a pipe and some home brew and thought he was quite sober. However, the court thought different, he was found guilty and fined 20s with £10s 6d costs.Ipswich Journal, February 10th 1900* (when George Brown was landlord)

the 1909 Rates book records George Brown at Rodwell Farm, so it seems probable that the beerhouse was there. It's on the main road, which would probably have been a good spot for it.
