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.

This large, timber framed pub with a distinctive Victorian façade was situated close to the centre of the village. Good food was available throughout the daytime and helped to make it a favourite place for both local people and walkers alike.
The core of the building dates from the mid-17th century, with several subsequent alterations.
Mid-Anglia CAMRA reported (in January 2016) that the pub had been closed for some time, future unknown. It was subsequently converted into an antiques shop.
