Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Due to the government announcement of January 4th, pubs are currently not permitted to sell alcohol to take away, though they are permitted to deliver it. We hope this will change before too long, so still list Suffolk pubs intending to sell takeaway drinks. Food continues to be available for takeaway as before.
