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.

Stowmarket Punch Bowl

Stowmarket Punch Bowl

Closed post-1970.

No details known, apart from a mention in Alfred Hedges' 1976 book, "Inns and Inn Signs of Norfolk and Suffolk".

The sign of the Punch Bowl was associated with 17th century Whigs, who favoured that drink over the wines drunk by their rival Tories.

This may well be another name for one of the pubs we already list in Stowmarket; it appears from the book that the pub was still open when it was published. It's evidently not a mis-placed Battisford Punch Bowl, as that pub is also mentioned in the book.
