In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.
A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 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 Bandbox name is thought to date from approximately 1973. But it was on the site of an older beerhouse, called the Buttermarket Tavern. It's recorded as having changed from a beerhouse license to a full one on March 6th 1961, so evidently dates from earlier than that.
Listed in Kelly's Tradefinder Directory for Ipswich in 1973 and 1975. Address listed as 46/48 Butter Market.
