In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. 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 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.

Sudbury Spread Eagle

Sudbury Spread Eagle

Closed between 1997 and 2006.

opened 14th century

89 Cross St

grid reference TL 868 411

The license for Bull hotel (Church st.) was transferred to the Spread Eagle in 1959 (see article in Feb 11 1959 EADT). Before this time the pub may have only had a beer house license.

This pub was listed in the local CAMRA pub guide in 1997, but had gone when our photographer tried to find it in 2006, which is as close as we can get to a closure date.

Footnote

The spread eagle was originally a Roman sign and later used by many countries including Austria, Germany, Russia, Spain & France. The sign is also used by many English noble families. Its popularity as an inn sign owes a lot to the fact that it was the device of Catherine of Aragon.
