In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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.

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 closd 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.
