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 is a friendly split level bar with a fish & chip shop/restaurant (eat in or take away) attached. The pub is named after a chalk pit (opposite) which used to contain lime kilns (some photos are on display in pub). There's a large garden and car-park. Buskers play every Sunday night. A quiz is held on the first Thursday of every month. Guest ales change regularly. There's no food on Sunday evening or Tuesdays but there's a Sunday Roast on Sundays

There's a toilet for disabled customers.

The pub is actually located in Willisham parish, though it's geographically nearer to Offton. The convoluted boundary between the two parishes here (see the map) adds to the confusion.
