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 terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

It was eventually demolished to make way for the municipal Fore Street Baths which opened in 1906. The baths are still in regular public use.

This was reputedly once a popular venue for Cistercian monks and one of the refreshment stops for perambulation processions - notably by St Clements parishioners at Rogation-tide.
