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.

My grandfather James Jolly was landlord here and also at the Cockfield Kings Head. I lived with him from 1940 to 1945, his sister also had Felsham Six Bells and two nephews had Hesset Five Bells & Preston Six Bells.
Also reported on Stowmarket Rd and Buxhall Rd.
