Little Wratting

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.

Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.

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

A small parish with no real centre of development, recorded in Domesday (along with Great Wratting) variously as "Wratinga", "Waracatinge" or "Vratinga". It appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Wratting pua".

The nave of the church is thought to be late Anglo-Saxon.

J Sainsbury, famous for his supermarket chain, was a native of Little Wratting.

We don't know whether or not the owners of Greenslade House (see gallery) are fans of the Goon Show, but the name certainly puts us in mind of the indefatigable Wallace.
