In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.
Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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 Neptune was reportedly in what's now the pier pavilion. It was first licensed on March 14th 1960, when the license from the now-defunct Grand hotel was transferred to it.
"The Neptune Bar was on lower left of the Pier building (now owned by Ipswich Salthouse oeners). It was popular with bikers and hippies and often had discos. Don't know when it closed but I can remember going in it c1972" Martyn Elmy
"In about 1982 it was renamed "Mariners" and traded for a couple more years." Martyn Elmy
