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

Set in a steep valley on the Cambridgeshire border and recorded in Domesday as "Uuesdana", the village's name means "Owls Valley" and owls are still common here today. May also historically be written as "Owsden". The correct pronunciation rhymes the first syllable with "cow". It appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Oueſden".

Demolished in 1955, the Hall was used as a POW camp during WW2. Formerly it was home to the Moseley, Ireland and Praed families. Because of the rather isolated location of the Parish Church, the Praed family gave the people of Ousden a Burial Ground in 1912, which may be seen almost a mile to the east of the church.
