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.

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.

Swan Rd, IP13 7HZ

grid reference TM 224 682

This characterful thatched pub has two main drinking rooms & various outside seating areas. Unusually the pub does not face the road junction but instead overlooks a small access road & a large garden. Parts of the pub date from the mid-16th century, possibly earlier.

The Swan (along with its beer garden) has been designated as an Asset of Community Value. Sadly we heard in January 2016 that the pub has closed, though in April news emerged of efforts to reopen it. We heard in August 2018 that the group is close to buying the pub. See their website.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
