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.

Ipswich Compasses?

Ipswich Compasses?

Thought to have been a pub but there is a degree of doubt.

All we know about this pub is a single newspaper report:

To be sold by auction, all the household furniture, and other effects, of Mr John Bromley, at the Compasses Inn, Ipswich,; comprising five 4-post and tent bedsteads, with cotton and moreen furniture; 4 stump bedsteads, 5 featherbeds and bedding, 3 chests with drawers, about 2 dozen of chairs, dining and other tables, excellent 30 hour clock in wainscot case, pier and dressing glasses, fenders, fire irons, glass and earthenware, 3 motion beer engine and pipe, 2 pigs, 3 hens and a cockerel, quantity of wheelwrights tools, 1 bench, sundry tools, quantity of fire wood.Ipswich Journal, September 1835**
