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.

Introduction

The village sign depicts a helmet and crossed swords, commemorating two battles that took place here. In about 902, King Edward fought off a cousin to retain the English crown. In 1173 Henry II defeated the Earl of Leicester and a Flemish army. Today the historic village is somewhat more peaceful. It appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Fernham omnium Sanctorum".

There's evidence of a small prehistoric or Roman settlement near Pigeon Lane, with as many as four hut circles.
