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

A parish with no real centre of settlement, lying on the junction of two Roman roads. Sibton was recorded in Domesday as "Sib(b)etuna". The village sign shows monks of the Cistercian order, from a monastery founded in the 12th cent. Except for Bury, this was the only foundation in the county to regularly have more than 20 monks at any one time. Among the ruins the lavatory is still visible. Sibton house was built of stone taken from the ruins. The remains of a post mill demolished in about 1922 can still be seen off Pump House Lane.

Interestingly, Pouy Street appears on the 1837 OS map as Little Boys Street.
