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.

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.
