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 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.

Ipswich Golden Key

Ipswich Golden Key

also traded as Key Inn

closed 26th January 2013.

438 Woodbridge Rd, IP4 4EN

grid reference TM 182 451

This was a prominent two bar pub which in latter years was a Greene King house.

Regrettably, in September 2012, local democracy was ignored when the planning inspector overturned the council's refusal of permission to redevelop the pub (see the EADT).

The pub closed on January 26th 2013 and has been extended and turned into a Sainsbury's supermarket. Which will sell more booze at pocket-money prices to undermine the next local pub.

The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
