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.

Hundon Cock

Hundon Cock

Closed 1935 circa, or post-1958.

Steeplechase Rd

grid reference TL 729 506

The Cock was reputedly demolished to make way for the nearby airfield (RAF Stradishall) which was built from 1935 onwards and was one of the first pre-war airfields to have concrete runways. However, the pub is still shown on OS maps at least as late as 1958, so this may not be correct (or perhaps it was left on the maps to conceal the existence of the airfield?)

The pub can be seen here on an old OS map from about the end of the 19th century larger map

As can be seen here, it was still visible on the 1958 map.
