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.

grid reference TM 336 897

Small local in the centre of town, which shows lots of sport and hosts karaoke and themed party events.

Tucked in a corner adjacent to Bigod's castle, the White Swan is a building dating from the 17th century.

Reported in early January 2018 to be closed and boarded up. Local rumours suggest it's been sold and will be renovated and reopened. However, when visited in July 2019, it was still boarded-up and appeared to still be on the market.

The pub is shown (but un-named) on this old OS map from about 1903 (interactive map)
