In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 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.

Footnote

The Alma is a river on the Crimea peninsular in the Ukraine. The first battle of the Crimea war between Russian soldiers and a successful, but unusually united, combined British and French force was fought here on the 20th September 1854. The Russian counter-attack one month later was at Balaclava which is today better remembered for one of the British cavalry's most famous heroic disasters.
