Stratford St Andrew
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 village name derives from a ford by which the Roman road crossed the River Alde. It was recorded in Domesday as "Straffort". Mill Lane marks the location of a post mill built about 1780, which worked until 1906. English Heritage records it as having been demolished in that year, but it can still be clearly seen in aerial photographs.
The Black Swan was only known about because it's mentioned as a former inn in the Listed Buildings Register. A little more research has identified its name.
