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.

The Street, IP7 7NQ

grid reference TL 982 512

A Grade II listed one-time free house, believed to date from mediaeval times. It is situated midway between Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds. The pub had a warm and friendly atmosphere and catered for all types of functions. To the left of the entrance was a separate public bar with a pool table, dart board and other pub games. Straight ahead was the lounge, dining room, and restaurant.

B&B rooms were opened mid-2010.

In May 2015, planning permission for conversion to residential use was granted on appeal. The impression was that pub would close as soon as a buyer has been found, but it was found de-signed and evidently only operating as a B&B when visited in November 2015, while still apparently for sale.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century…
