As pubs across the county are starting to reopen, we're trying to collate a comprehensive list of those that have reopened or are close to it. Our list can be found on this page.
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.

Attractive flint faced building opened as a pub and shop in the late 1800’s and was sold by Greene King in 2014. A 120ft deep unrecorded well was discovered (safely we hope) during alterations in recent times and is now a feature beneath a grille in the entrance lobby. Classic back and front bars with food available and can be taken in either. Back bar is the public with games and conversation dominating, well-behaved dogs are allowed in here.
The pub sign depicts the cap badge of the Suffolk Regiment.
