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.

Aldeburgh Pig & Whistle

Aldeburgh Pig & Whistle

Closed pre-1840

near Shatterbone Bridge

grid reference TM 470 593 (approximate location)

I have heard from a lady in Aldeburgh and District Local History group who was speaking to a steward at the Moot Hall who had heard from an old boy some time ago that this pub was by the old Rattlebone bridge, that crossed the old River Hundred between Thorpeness and Aldeburgh, before the Ogilvies changed the course of the River Hundred by making the Meare.

(information from Neil Langridge)

Note: documents in Aldeburgh museum list this bridge as the "Shatterbone Bridge" rather than "Rattlebone". It was apparently replaced with the Jubilee Bridge some time between 1889 and 1934.

If you have more information about this pub we would like to know!
