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.

Barton Rd, IP31 3QT

A listed building, this popular local sits in the middle of the village a short walk from the railway station. The restaurant, serving good home cooked food, is within the public bar area separated by up-lights from an original wall, with a separate bar for pool and darts. On bank holidays and special occasions live music is performed. The pub holds regular quiz nights and bingo. Accommodation is available.
Although the pub can appear food-oriented, people just there for drinks are welcomed.
It's deservedly a many-times winner of West Suffolk CAMRA's pub of the year and overall Suffolk pub of the year as well.
The pub was originally built to provide drinks for labourers building the railway line and station.
