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 422 901

This building seems to be a rebuild of the pub, which is listed as far back as 1730, as it was described as "newly erected" at a sale in 1855.

It's still listed in licensing records as late as 1965, though other records suggest it had closed by 1974.

The address we list is from the 1909 rates records.

It's shown (but not named) on this OS town plan of 1884.
