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.
A dry parish. Shipmeadow was recorded in Domesday as "Scipmetdua" or "Scipmedu" and appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Shepemeadow, showing that the name means "sheep meadow" rather than having anything to do with ships. This is also confirmed by the village sign.
A Pest House was built in Shipmeadow in 1767 by the Guardians of the Poor within the Hundred of Wangford. It no longer stands.
