In the light of the latest government instructions, all pubs are now closed until at least December 2nd.

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

After the end of Lockdown, Suffolk will remain in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

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.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Orford Mariner's Compass

Orford Mariner's Compass

Closed unknown

At one point in Richard Cobbold's book "The History of Margaret Catchpole", which is loosely based on Catchpole's life, it's stated that

some of the [smuggling] crew were ashore, and were staying at the Mariner's Compass, at Orford

This may have been an older name for one of the inns we already list in Orford, or perhaps another, as yet un-located, one.

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.
