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.

Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.

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.

Woodbridge New house

Woodbridge New house

Closed pre-1840

Cumberland St

grid reference TM 272 489 (approximate location)

All we know about this premises (possibly mainly used a an off licence) is an entry in the Ipswich journal in 1778:

Simon Maw, Grocer and Wine-maker, of Woodbridge, late in partnership with Robert Dudley, informs the public, that he is removed to the New House, opposite the Queen's Head Tavern, where he sells as usual, wholesale and retail, all articles in the Grocery. The very best home-made Wines and Raspberry Brandy, on the most reasonable terms.Ipswich Journal, 21 Mar 1778***

Since the Seckford Street Queen's Head seems never to have had any buildings opposite it, we can be confident that the Queen's Head referred to is the one in Cumberland Street.
