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.

An earlier pub of the same name was located in the Market place.

My grandfather, Richard DAVISON, was a Greene King tenant of two BSE pubs, the Chequers Alehouse and the George Inn. Please note spelling of his surname; the Kelly version is incorrect.
Licence was voluntarily surrendered 5 Dec 1957 at which date the pub closed and my grandfather continued to live at the premises until his death in 1976. The death of my grandmother earlier in the year triggered the closure of the pub.
"The license was transferred by Greene King to their new pub the Greengage. There was once a framed notice to this effect in the Greengage.Information from Tony Worman

The pub has also been listed at Westgate Street, and at 19 or 16 Out Westgate or at 19 Westgate (in 1891).…
