Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.
Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.
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.

The original building is shown on this old OS map from about 1903 (interactive map)
The licensed Victuallers Tea Association advertised the sale of tea via its Suffolk Agents. This was a response to the irregular sale of Wine by Grocers and included a reference to S. FOSTER of the Jolly Sailor, Pakefield.Ipswich Journal, October 26th 1869**
In 1900 it was listed at Pakefield Street, Kirkley (in Lowestoft).
The Jolly Sailors was apparently originally only licensed as a beerhouse, as the full license was transferred from the Bramfield Swan on April 20th 1935.
Although there has been a pub on this site since at least 1855, the current building appears 20th century, perhaps dating from the 1930s. Whether it was rebuilt or just heavily remodelled is uncertain.
