Last Orders magazine

This is a free local Camra magazine produced and distributed in Suffolk & North Essex.  Its name acts as a poignant reminder of the hundreds of small rural East Anglian beer houses and pubs that have closed their doors for the final time in recent years.

Last Orders magazine is written and edited by members of Suffolk and NE Essex Camra branches.

It is Edited by Nigel Smith - contact him at to help raise awareness of any forthcoming beer festivals, new beers from a local brewery or interesting features that deserve a wider audience.
