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 of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Prior to 1851, the pub was in Stoke by Nayland so will appear in old records under that village.
To be sold...a Messuage, with the Apputenances used as a Publick-House, and called the Hare and Hounds, Stoke next Nayland, now in the Occupation of Thomas Eastall.Ipswich Journal, July 31st 1756***
At the annual licensing meeting for Boxford, Mr Baker Hazell applied for the license for the Hare and Hounds, Stoke, which had been closed for some time. He supported his application with a certificate of good character and his license was granted.Ipswich Journal, September 1870**
In the Mar 1981 edition of Last Orders**** it was reported that Peter & Janet at the Hare & Hounds were hosting folk club nights (last Tuesday of the month) and offering GK beers on gravity.
NOTE: A messuage equates to a dwelling-house and may include outbuildings, orchard, curtilage or court-yard and garden - this may have been an earlier structure to the current property.
