In the light of the latest government instructions, all pubs are now closed until at least December 2nd.
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.
After the end of Lockdown, Suffolk will remain in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with 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.
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.
Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Raglan Street was renumbered between 1888 and 1891, the pub was at 33 or 34 and became 61.
Robert Charles Jago was my great grandfather who owned/ran the pub in the 1890's and into the 1900's. I thought you might like to know that I have found some other sources that indicate it was named Hearts of Oak in the 1890s:
- Both the 1891 & 1901 census has Robert living at 61 Raglan St. In 1891 after the address it just indicates "Public House". In 1901 it indicates "Hearts of Oak tavern". The 1911 census isn't available yet so I'm not sure when he gave it up.
- Robert Charles Jago lost a couple of children who were buried at the Lowestoft Cemetery. Their address at time of death was listed as the Hearts of Oak tavern on Raglan Street see here (look for Thomas Blake & Violet Janet).…
