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.
All we know about this pub is a reference in the Ipswich Journal in 1782. If you know more please let us know.
There will be a quantity of horses and colts …to be sold at William Grooms’s at Hintlesham Lion on Fri 9th Aug where all gentlemen and dealers may be supplied and met with a hearty welcome from their humble servant, William Groom… a good ordinary at 1 o clock…Ipswich Journal, 3 Aug 1782
