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

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the 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 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.

Felixstowe Ferry Sun Inn

Felixstowe Ferry Sun Inn

Closed unknown

Richard Cobbold's novel "The History of Margaret Catchpole", based loosely on Catchpole's life, has her brother Edward staying at one point in the Sun Inn at Bawdsey Ferry (now known as Felixstowe Ferry). Whether this was an older name for one of the two other pubs documented here or a different one is unknown. Perhaps it was an older name for then Victoria, which would not have had that name in Catchpole's day if it had existed.

Although Cobbold's story about Catchpole was mostly fantasy, he does seem pretty reliable where geography is concerned, so we can be fairly confident this pub probably did exist.
