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.
You can now buy beer from many pubs and breweries via CAMRA's new Brew2You app. Click on the logo to download the app.
The pub and most of the houses lie on Hoggards Green close to Bradfield Combust, with which the village has recently been merged to form a "super-parish". In Elizabethan times it was a centre of Roman Catholic recusancy. Coldham Hall was built in 1574 and contains priest holes and various escape routes leading to the chimney stacks and under the floor. The house was also used to hold illegal Mass ceremonies. One inhabitant of the hall, Ambrose Rokewode, was later executed for his part in the Gunpowder Plot; his horses were to have been used by the plotters to escape. The village sign shows Guy Fawkes holding a lighted taper to barrels of gunpowder.
A Romano-British pottery kiln, dating from the 3rd or 4th century was found in Stanningfield.
Stanningfield was recorded in Domesday as "Stanfella" or "Stanesfelda".
