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.

Closed about 1924.

2 Fore Hamlet

grid reference TM 170 440

This pub was listed at 1 and 2 Fore Hamlet before 1891 and also mentioned as being in Duke Street.

Previously on this site was a pub called the Cock, which has been dated back to 1609, but we do not know if any of this survived to be a part of the later building. The nearby junction was also once known as Cock corner.

The property was not listed in 1932, but the pub was listed in the 1903-1923 Borough Police licensed premises register, so must have closed after 1923.

This pub has since been demolished.

The pub can be seen here on an 1881 map. The Congregational Chapel shown was Grimwade Hall, now part of the residential development that fronts the roundabout between Fore and Back Hamlets.
