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

The village is set in the midst of a conservation area and has several 17th century cottages. Sir Stephen Soame (1544-1619), Lord Mayor of London, was a resident of the parish. He left many legacies including almshouses for the poor and an endowed school. King Charles II is reputed to have played bowls at the hall. Also see Great Thurlow.

Recorded in Domesday (along with Great Thurlow) as "Tridlauua", "Tritlawa" or "Thrillauura". It appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Thurlow pua".

A large smock mill stood a short distance north of the Cock. It was built in 1865 but stopped working before WWI. The remains of the mill comprise part of the current-day Mill House.
