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.
Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.
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.

This distinctive red brick building dates from 1898 (though a pub has existed on this site since the 17th century) and provides a cosy community local, located close to the village duck pond and the large green. The main bar has two areas separated by a fireplace.
Food is served in the bar or the downstairs restaurant. The restaurant leads on to a pretty garden.
