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.

Little is known about this, apart from plaques on the walls saying that it's "The Old Alehouse". If you can tell us anything about it, please get in touch.
It's shown as a beerhouse on the 1884 OS map, so we can be sure it dates back at least that far. It can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century.
