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

Now a dry parish. The village was recorded in Domesday variously as "Wicham", "Wikham" and "Wiccham". It appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Wickham Skithe".

Under an ancient oak on Wizard farm many Saxon coins were found (Harold & Edward the Confessor) in early 19th cent. which were deposited in British Museum.

The village hall was built in 1909 as a men's reading room, to keep them away from the Swan, though it took nearly 60 years to keep enough away from it so that it closed.

A tower mill, demolished in 1925, stood near The Entry.
