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.
Extra services available here during the Covid-19 lockdown:
Takeaway available Tue - Sat : 17:00 - 19:30 & Sun 12:00 - 15:00, with delivery available to Chattisham & Hintlesham.
See the website for details.
Real Ale is sold here.
