In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 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.

Little Waldingfield Swan

Little Waldingfield Swan

Currently closed - may reopen?

The St, CO10 0SQ

grid reference TL 922 451

A one bar pub with a separate restaurant.

The building mainly dates from the 18th century, though parts date back to the 16th century.

The pub has been closed since early 2017 and when visited in May 2018 was looking abandoned and un-loved. A sign in the window says:

The Swan - Little Waldingfield

Under new ownership 30th June 2017

Dear customers and villagers,

The Swan will be closed for a while but we will be investing in refurbishment of this fine building to attract the best possible new long-term tenants that the pub and village deserves.

We aim to keep you updated as our plans evolve, but in the meantime, please feel free to contact us with any comments, questions or potential new tenants.…
