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.
Situated between two villages with panoramic views over the Suffolk countryside the Plough is a great venue for eating and drinking. Run by CAMRA members the varied beers are well kept and the food excellent. Two beer festivals are held at Easter and in the autumn along with regular quizzes, steak and fish nights and other special events. Quality accommodation is available in en-suite rooms.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
The current building is a former village school. They may have been an earlier pub building but we do not have any details of it as yet.
Auction of the Plough, Hundon.Ipswich Journal, August 27th 1851**
When my dad took on the Plough in 1958 it was owned by the Dunmow Brewery (this brewery was in North Street, Dunmow, Essex - opposite the duck pond). It was subsequently sold to Charrington's and we were a bit out of their range for delivery so we were encouraged to buy it.Peter Rowlinson
In the December 1982 edition of Last Orders*** it was reported that Zeb Banks (then the local CAMRA branch chairman) was landlord here, where building work was just being completed.
