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 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.

Introduction

Flempton is a typical breckland village with many flint-clad houses, near to the River Lark. It was recorded in Domesday as "Flemingtuna". The name apparently refers to Flemings who settled here a long time ago, perhaps because William the Conqueror gave land here to Flemish mercenaries who had fought for him.

There are Bronze Age barrows to the west of the village and just to the north is West Stow, with its country park and Anglo-Saxon museum & recreation village.

The village was home to the (now defunct) East of England Regional Assembly and is said to be the geographical centre of East Anglia.
