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

Kentford is a settlement on the border with Cambridgeshire, appearing on John Speed's 1610 map as "Kenforde". The A14 now by-passes it to the north, though the main road through the village is still very busy, with large numbers of HGVs using it. The ancient Icknield Way still runs through the parish. Local prehistoric finds include a Palaeolithic hand axe and two round barrows. Lilly Langtry lived in the village for a number of years. The Bell lies at the west end, over the border with Kennett in Cambridgeshire.
