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.

Due to current regulations, pubs are closed until December 2nd. From that date, they can only sell drinks when accompanied by a substantial meal. This means not all pubs can reopen at present.

A rare example of a back-street pub that is a former beer house and has only had a full license since 1962.

Tucked away, but located quite close to the nearby railway station with its magnificent early Victorian façade.

All beer is served on gravity from a small temperature controlled room behind the bar. Up to twelve beers are available, see slates hanging over bar. Also up to ten ciders are available during the summer months (ask for more details).

Hot and cold snacks are always available. The pub has two darts teams and a cribbage team.

Friendly locals and good conversation are the order of the day. Treasure it, there are few left like it.
