In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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.

Long Melford Angel

Long Melford Angel

Closed pre-1840.

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

Last Saturday (16th Feb) Edward Humfrey, who lately kept the Angel at Melford, was committed to Bury Gaol by Sir Cordell Firebrace. Bart. on suspicion of being concern'd in the Murder of Mr Drew.Ipswich Journal, February 23rd 1740***
