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

Great Wratting is an attractive conservation village close to the source of the River Stour. It was recorded in Domesday (along with Little Wratting and West Wratting, in Cambridgeshire) variously as "Wratinga", "Waracatinge" or "Vratinga". On John Speed's 1610 map, it appears as "Tallow wratting", a name which must have an interesting derivation and is known to have been used at least as recently as 1851.

Several local cottages were originally built for the founder of W.H.Smith & Sons. Red Field may be the site of the Battle of Risbridge (635CE) between King Sigbert of East Anglia and Penda of Mercia.
