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.


A small village gathered around a crossroads and recorded in Domesday as "Trostuna". The area has been settled for about 4000 years as evidenced from the Bronze age tumuli. The Hall was once the home of the Lofft family. Capel Lofft campaigned with Wilberforce to end the slave trade, but ended his life bankrupt and had to live in one of the estate workers' cottages.

The Bull reopened in 2017 after six years of closure, but closed again in August 2018, along with the Wilde Bull brewery which operated at the pub for a short time.
