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.

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.

Rickinghall Superior Hamblyn House

closed 1997

opened 16th century

The Street, IP22 1BN

grid reference TM 046 757

According to A Survey of Suffolk Parish History, Hamblyn House was already an inn by 1508.

The large lounge was dominated by a large fireplace.

The parish boundary runs through the building, following the course of an underground stream.

In the June/July 1981 edition of Last Orders*** it was reported that Geoff & Ros were then offering beers from Tolly Cobbold, Adnams & Abbot on handpump.

It's now a private residence after a short spell as a restaurant.

The pub was owned by St Peter's brewery for a while in the late 1990s, during the early days of this local brewery.
