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.

Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.

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.

Currently closed - may reopen?

The St, IP12 3BL

grid reference TM 343 416

A cosy "L" shaped single bar and dining space. The restaurant specialises in a fusion of English and Spanish food.

It was announced late in November 2019 that this pub will be closed as of xmas eve. There are hopes of a community buy-out, possibly tied in with the Shottisham Sorrel Horse.

The building dates from the 17th century.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
