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.

Rushmere St Andrew Buck's head

Rushmere St Andrew Buck's head

Closed 1840-1920

All we know about these premises is a single newspaper report:

Henry Highbee, was committed for trial for having stolen a sovereign the property of Robert Howard, a labourer, of Rushmere. Howard had gone to the Buck's Head public house at Rushmere where he purchased earthenware, to the value of 1s 10d, from Highbee. He mistakenly paid for his goods with a sovereign and a shilling instead of 2s, he soon realised his mistake and told Highbee what he had done. Highbee denied theft but admitted defrauding Howard.Ipswich Journal, October 1850**

Could this actually be in the other Rushmere?
