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.

Eriswell Bell

Eriswell Bell

Closed 1840-1920.

The Street

grid reference TL 725 780

No entries for this pub have been found in the 1874 White's or 1879 Kelly's directories.

(The 1861 census describes location as Bell Inn, The ?Church?, which is next to the blacksmiths shop.)

This old OS map from about the end of the 19th century (larger map) shows "Old Bell Farm" between the smithy and the church. This seems a likely location and suggests that the pub had closed by then. Our map location and photograph show what seems the most likely candidate for the correct building. It's called Bell House, which also fits in.
