Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" 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.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

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

Due to current regulations, pubs can only sell drinks when accompanied by a substantial meal. This means not all pubs can reopen at present.

Currently closed - may reopen?
Closed "until further notice" on March 17th 2020.

A large landmark building, close to Derby Road Station (which gave it its name). The Railway is a pub with a long-standing reputation for live music.

It was renovated late-2016 and is run as a pub/music venue with live music Friday and Saturday, plus occasional Sunday gigs. Admission fees may be payable on occasions to get in.

The pub may close early some nights if it's quiet and on occasions may not open at all.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
