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.

Benacre Walnut Tree

Benacre Walnut Tree

Closed 1877 or 78.

opened pre-1746

The Street

grid reference TM 504 851

The Walnut Tree disappears from the licensing records in 1878 so seems likely to have closed at about that time. However, it was still known as the Walnut Tree for many years after the pub closed; the 1909 Rates book records a shop and buildings "at the Walnut Tree".

It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century as "Walnut Tree Inn Farm". larger map
