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.

This pub had an unusual layout, which made it feel more like a bar in someone's house than a pub.
In its later years, the Trafalgar was significantly improved with the addition of a conservatory and noted for a wider-than-average range of ales.
Owen Bird the publican at the Trafalgar Inn gave evidence in the trial of William West who was found guilty of burglary. West had left the Old Times after closing and broke into the house of Thomas Brookfield at 134 Cauldhall Road, stealing three coats. He received 14 months hard labour.Ipswich Journal, November 21st 1891** (when Owen Bird was the landlord)
