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.

This old pub is a Grade 2 listed building dating from the early 19th century. In recent years it's been left to decay into a poor state.

It was called the Steam Brewery Tap when it was owned by Victorian brewer Charles Cullingham, who set-up a brewery to the rear of the pub. The archway through the pub building would have been the entrance to the brewery from Brook Street.

It was renamed the Brewery Inn after being acquired by Tollemache (after 1887), and later used as offices.

It's shown on this OS town plan of 1883.
