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

Located on river Brett, recorded in Domesday as "Seamera" and appearing on John Speed's 1610 map as "Semere". The 1837 OS map shows it as "Seamer".

In 1841 the population was 370 including 108 in the Cosford Union Workhouse which was then situated within the parish. Built in 1780 as a House of Industry it was large enough for 500 inmates and cost about £8,000 to erect. Ten acres of land surrounded the workhouse, much of which was cultivated by the inmates. There was also a cemetery in the grounds. Little now survives of the buildings but a former isolation hospital is now used as a private house.
