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.

Hundon Cock

Hundon Cock

Closed either about 1935, 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?)

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