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

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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.

The pub is also reported as Southend (1839), High Street & Nelson Street.

It seems probable that this un-named pub, shown on an OS town plan of 1885, was the Herring Fishery.
