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.

Some sources suggest this commercial inn and posting house was in the building at the corner of Angel Hill and Chequer Square (with frontage to the square), however this 1885 OS town plan makes it clear that it was actually slightly to the north of this building, with frontage to Angel Hill.

In the late 18th and early 19th century this was a notable family coaching inn and posting house including the "New Accommodation Light Pair Horse Coach" which in 1823 set out from here daily at 8am and guaranteed to get to Norwich in 6 hours.

The inn has also been listed at 36 Churchgate Street.
